Car rental terms

Rental car excess

Your hire car at Cardiff is fully insured for theft and damage as part of the rental cost. For rentals outside of the US and Canada there is almost always an insurance excess to pay* - just like on domestic car insurance in the UK. The excess on hire cars can be high. It's usually in the region of £1,100 to £2,500. If you decide not to cover the excess amount you could be liable to pay for any damage to the car up to the excess amount. Check out our Premium Cover hire car options if you'd like to avoid having the excess amount held on your credit card .

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The hire cars at Cardiff on our site include a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be required to pay a deposit for fuel on your credit card when you pick up the rental. Ensure that you fill the rental up and return it full and there will be no additional fees for fuel.

You might see full to empty policies on some other websites that seem to be lower cost deals. Be sure to check the small print for full to empty rentals as the refuelling and admin costs associated with full to empty fuel policies make it more expensive than full to full .

Collecting your 13 Seater rental in Cardiff using a debit card and other payment options.

You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when hiring a 13 seater with us.

If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover with your vehicle, this usually means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle. You will more often than not be given the option to buy a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the vehicle, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Car Hire in Cardiff with no Excess

The car will already be fully covered for accidents and theft as part of the rental price you will see displayed on our website. This cover is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Cardiff include CDW in the price displayed, there is often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The insurance excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess on rental cars can be very expensive. It's normally between £900 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the rental car, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't taken from your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you drop off the vehicle. You won't usually pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, this excess amount is fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a car in Cardiff with a £0 or reduced excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

If you fail to do so, you might find that the rental car will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You'll find the information relating to cross border charges and fees by clicking Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

We process all refunds in less than 24 hours. If you cancel the rental, this means that the money will be back in your account within 7 days.
