‘No Hidden Extras’ – We see this a lot when we see an advert for something and it typically means that there are extras to pay but because they have been outlined in small print then technically they are not hidden.
Some of these charges that are hidden in plain sight can be mandatory costs depending on your situation, so you need to be aware of them before you commit to anything.
That is not the way we work, when we say ‘No Hidden Extras‘ we mean it, we will advise you of and include all costs in your quote to enable you to make an educated decision on whether to book with us or not.
Some examples of additional costs are:
- Excess Reduction
- Young Driver Surcharges
- Senior Driver Surcharges
- One Way Fees
- Cross Border Fees
- Fuel Charges
- Local Taxes/Premium Location Fees
What this means is, if you are a 78 year old driver who would like to insure your 21 year old grandson as an additional driver, collect the car in London and return to Leeds but would like to travel to Ireland for a few days in between and do not want to be liable for a large excess then you could be paying upwards of £80 per day on top of the quoted rental cost from other companies. For those that are less eagle-eyed than some, you wouldn’t find out about this until you arrive to collect the car, which could be too late to change your mind.
If you advise us of your circumstances before you make a booking then we will look at all of the options available and give you all of the information to book with the supplier that best fits. Yes there could be additional charges but we will always let you know what they are upfront and will always do our best to help you avoid paying for anything you don’t actually need to.
Always ensure that you contact us before making a booking, we can qualify your debit card and get you booked in with a supplier that matches your needs. You can call us on 0113 88 00 408, chat with us online or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
