We will then confirm the booking. The balance of booking is payable six weeks before hire date. A security deposit of €1000 is required at the time of hire and is refundable upon return of vehicle provided there is no damage or penalties (speeding fines/tolls/parking tickets). Credit Card transactions will incur a two percent transaction fee. If a booking is made and agreed at short notice (under six weeks) all payments and documents must be received at time of booking. If you have any questions please give us a call and we will help guide you through the process.
