Your 30 second guide to hiring a car... start the timer!

Always read the T&Cs

Be sure to look out for those extra charges when you are hiring a car. If there are any extra charges levied you'll be able to find them in the terms and conditions. Pay particular attention to the fuel policy, additional driver charges, age restrictions and cancellation fees.

Fuel charges

There are two means of paying for fuel when hiring a car. Full tank charging and return full policies. Full tank means you are charged for the full tank despite what you use and return full means you return the car with a full tank of fuel. We always advise looking for return full deals as they provide the best value for money.

Insurance excess charges

All prices quoted on Car Hire Search include insurance but be sure to look out for larger insurance excesses in the terms and conditions.
