As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we also offer two additional levels of insurance when you hire a Minibus in Faro with us.
Essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle and other things. For more details see the terms and conditions on the extras page
Essential cover will appear as a choice in the vehicle hire insurance section. For some geographical/partner Minibus rental combinations the cover might not be available.
Essential Cover comes with fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.
Essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a wide-range of additional costs that standard insurance doesn't.
You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when hiring a Minibus with us.
Don't forget that quite often Minibus hire partners that do accept debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as those that accept credit card only.
It is useful to know the payment options for your Minibus hire, as payments for add ons (like GPS and extra drivers) might have to be paid for in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) when you pick up the Minibus.
If you've chosen Essential or Basic Cover for your vehicle, it often means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You'll more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the hire partner on collection, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
You can book using a huge number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card on collection, Minibus rental companies sometimes block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a large amount of money and if you opt to pay using debit card this might be debited from your bank and not refunded until a couple of weeks after you've returned the vehicle.
