Ok, we're really, really trying not to be heartless here, but know this: When someone calls to cancel a rental, there's an 80% chance that they use the death-in-the-family excuse with us. (yes, we've measured.) We've heard it so much, that A) we can't believe that so many people would stoop so low, and B) We don't believe it anymore. We're very sorry if you actually have a death in the family, because there are a lot of people out there who cry wolf and have ruined it for you and made us cold, heartless automatons.
The freedom to explore at your own will, a practical way to transport the family around, avoidance of public transport… whatever your reasons for hiring a car on holiday, the most important thing is getting a good deal that works for you. Finding the best car hire deal goes far beyond price. Remember that the cheapest car hire offer may not necessarily be the best one for you. When you use TravelSupermarket, we give you all the information you need to find the right deal, whatever your budget.
Another options is if you have an American Express card - they offer a program called 'Premium Car Rental Protection'. This is available directly from American Express and provides coverage for your GDC rental vehicle. This is a great option because it can be purchased in addition to your regular insurance policy and provides an extra layer of protection.
Due to the extremely high cost of the vehicles we offer, it is our policy to take a refundable security deposit for all our rentals and Dream Car Tour participants. The deposits range from $2,500 - $15,000 depending on the vehicle and level of insurance you carry. Rest assured, this is refunded in full once the vehicle has been returned to us and thoroughly inspected. This usually takes 3-5 business days after the end of your rental. If there are any additional mileage charges or minor damages, they are billed from your deposit and the balance is refunded back onto your credit card.
Guests are required to pay for rental with a credit card from an internationally recognized issuer. The payment Credit Card MUST provide the extra Rental Car Insurance Coverages. Many banks offer this as a free perk when you use their credit card to pay for the rental. You can confirm this by calling your credit card issuer. We will also confirm this on every rental.
