Terms of our Lowest Price Guarantee:
Our guarantee applies to renting the exact same vehicle for the same duration, at the same time of year, from the same brand (eg Avis, Thrifty, Alamo, Hertz).
- Offer applies to advertised deals or written quotes and for this offer to be valid we may require evidence.
- Offer is subject to availability. Our price guarantee is a serious promise for matching any competitor's legitimate price offer, but for our own protection, we reserve the right to refuse to match a price at any time, mainly due to the fact that some websites may have an incorrect/out of date rates showing, or a quote may have been modified by the customer.
