We will be able to access your licence details and confirm whether you have any endorsements. This way, we will be able to quickly confirm whether we are able to rent a car to you. We may also re-run the licence check service immediately prior to your car rental, to consider any endorsements received in the period between booking and hire.
You will have use of the car for the period of time shown in the rental agreement.
Which car will I be renting?
In most cases you will be renting a Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE. If, for any reason, we are unable to rent you a Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE, we will substitute it with an equivalent car.
Can I rent any accessories?
Your car will come with sat nav as standard. You can rent up to two child seats at no extra charge.
We will drop off the car, together with any optional accessories you have requested, at the address you gave us for the rental start date and time. We need at least 24 hours' notice from you to be able to deliver a car to you. We will confirm via our main reservation form on our app whether we are able to fulfil your delivery request.
Where can I have the car dropped off to and collected from?You can have the car dropped off at and collected from any address within the service area in London, UK, provided that both you and we are permitted to be there. If it is not possible or safe to drop off the car to the address you have provided, we will endeavour to find an alternative location nearby and notify you.You can have the car collected from a different location to the drop-off location, as long as it is within the service area in London, UK.

What items do I need with me to rent the car?You will need to provide:
- a valid GB or other EU driving licence

We will collect the car and any optional accessories that you have rented at the address given by you at the end date and time. Please park the car in a safe place.

Can I extend the rental period?

Mileage of over 600 miles in each 24 hour period constitutes excessive mileage, and you will be charged £0.30 per mile in case of excess mileage.
We will deliver the car to you containing a full tank of fuel, in a roadworthy state and suitable for you to use at the start of the rental period. We will have maintained the car to at least the manufacturer’s recommended standard.

If the car is not available for collection at the end of the rental period on the agreed date, time and place we will use the data recorded on the device to recover our car.

We are responsible if someone is injured or dies as a result of our action or failure to act. We are also responsible for any loss you suffer as a result of us breaking the contract between us, if we could have predicted your loss at the time the contract was entered into and it is a result of us breaking the contract. We are not responsible for any indirect losses which occur as a side effect of the main loss and which we or you could not have predicted, such as loss of profits or loss of opportunity (for example not being able to go to a business meeting or catching a flight).
We are only responsible for loss or damage to personal belongings in the car if the loss or damage is a result of our neglect or if we have broken the contract between us. Although we provide fully comprehensive insurance for the car (subject to the excess payable by you set out in your rental agreement), we do not provide insurance covering your personal items whilst they are in the car. You are responsible for your personal belongings at all times, and for removing your personal belongings, including your data, from the car at the end of the rental period.

We will usually dispose of any unclaimed personal belongings after one week.
