Hire car jargon explained

Third party liability cover

Rental cars at Manchester listed on our site always includes this.

Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an incident. If you do, it might kill or injure others (for instance your passengers, people in other vehicles or pedestrians), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be covered, you could be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating any injuries or covering their loss of earnings, as well as the third party's legal fees and court fees.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you would need to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £1,000 to £1,600, varying dependent on the value of the car, the country and the deal). When you cover your excess , you will be refunded for any or all of the excess you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, your excess is often reduced to zero.

Excess Insurance

Purchasing excess cover ensures you'll be reimbursed for any of the excess you have to pay to the car hire company .

This insurance also tends to cover other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling fees.

Extra driver costs

Car rental contracts at Manchester is between the hire car company and the individual who signs the agreement and will be the named driver. This means you will need to ask for other drivers to be added, and this usually comes with a cost ( can be up to £10a day at Manchester or even more). We often list promotions that include extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the price.

Top tips to discover the best deal on your Minibus rental

Factor in the time of year:

To bag yourself a deal for your rental in Manchester, it pays to book , especially during peak times like Christmas and School holidays. Minibus rental can be in high demand in the summer months and often the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than many other types of rental. If the price drops after you've booked your rental with us, we offer free cancellation, this means you can cancel anytime up until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you're shopping around for your rental on different websites, be cautious to factor in the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you go over the mileage allowance or hire a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you could face some unexpected charges when you drop off the car. We only compare full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Be sure to compare the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. For cheaper Minibus rentals, you will have to pay a more expensive security deposit, this is held on your credit card when you pick up. You'll see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Child Seats and other extras:

You can see the prices of these on our extras page. Quite often we have special deals, including additional drivers in the price. Where free extra drivers are available, you'll see them listed on the search results page of website.

One-way fees and border crossing:

If you plan to take your Minibus over a border into a different country from Manchester extra fees are normally charged by the car rental company.

You will usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

It's good to know the payment and currency options for your Minibus hire, as often payments for add ons (such as extra drivers and sat nav) might need to be settled in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on collection.

Limited mileage rentals in Manchester are often cheaper than unlimited. When considering limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance is always clearly visibile.
