Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we also offer two additional levels of insurance when you hire a 9 seater with us.
Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and more.
Our 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. To view the detailed information see the terms and conditions on the extras page
Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle hire booking in Edinburgh, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a wide-range of additional costs that standard insurance doesn't.
Essential cover appears as an optional extra in the vehicle hire insurance section. For some geographical/partner 9 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.
During the COVID pandemic ensuring safety remains our highest priority. As before the crisis and throughout we offer free cancellation with a full refund on all rental cars. Whilst the current situation is ongoing, we have significantly reduced the amount of time it takes to process refunds, we process all refunds within 1 business day of receiving the customer cancellation request - with the funds usually clearing back to the customer's account in less than 7 business days.
All of our car rental partners are carrying out additional cleaning processes, following the applicable local regulations, throughout the ongoing pandemic. Here's an summary of the further measures being taken.
Europcar have implemented extra vehicle deep cleaning measures. Car keys are also disinfected between all rentals and placed in a sealed envelope once disinfected. A zero contact policy is in place at the collection area, with all desks cleaned between every customer interaction.
New protocols are being implemented by our car hire partner Greenmotion, including the installation of protection screens and hand sanitiser units at collection locations. Employees are also now wearing protective equipment such as masks and gloves. Each car is being thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between every rental.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently 9 seater hire brands that do allow debit card at the desk are more expensive than 9 seater hire companies that accept credit card only.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card on collection, 9 seater hire companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a large amount of money , if you choose to pay using a debit card this might be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks following your rental has ended.
Quite often, rentals that come with the Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the vehicle without any extra fees. You can view if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the vehicle hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of our booking process.
