Local Deposits & Petrol 
A deposit or a valid credit card (VISA, MC, Diners, Maestro) is required at the start of the rental to cover petrol, liability excess and other charges incurred during the hire. Provided the car & extras are returned in the same state as rented & in accordance with the fuel policy, this deposit will be refunded when returning the vehicle. Please note some local rental companies operate a fuel policy where you, the renter, must purchase the first tank of fuel & return the vehicle empty - in these circumstances there is no refund for unused fuel.

Minimum/Maximum Age Limitations
In most destinations, the minimum hiring age is 21 years. Surcharges can apply with certain suppliers & in certain countries for drivers aged less than 25 years and over 65 years, where the correct driver age has been submitted with the booking request we will advise of any likely charges. Minimum age requirements on larger car groups may also be increased at selected locations. Please check with our Reservations Centre if you, the renter, have any questions or concerns on this matter.
