Once your paperwork has been inspected, you will be asked to sign a Rental Agreement. This is a contract between you and the car hire company and contains the terms and conditions for your rental. The agreement may include some location-specific conditions as well as setting out the limitations of any cover you have and the extra costs you may be liable for.

All vehicles come with basic roadside assistance with vehicle replacement (in event of breakdown).

Some parts of the vehicle are not covered by your insurance including damage to tyres, glass, exterior mirrors, underside, interior, roof, engine, damage to the locks and loss of vehicle keys. You may take out extra cover on our site of at the collection desk for many of these exclusions.

Hire car terms explained

Third party liability cover

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

Third party liability is subject to an excess, this means you'll need to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £850 to £3,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal). When you cover your excess amount, you will be reimbursed for any or all of the excess you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, the excess amount can be reduced to zero.

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

It insures the amount due if the rental car is stolen. It is subject to an excess , this means you'll be required to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £950 to £1,500, depending on the deal, the car rental company and the location.

When you insure your excess , however, you'll be refunded for the of the excess amount you pay (See essential cover). Or with Premium Cover the excess is often reduced.

Excess reimbursement insurance

Choosing essential cover ensures you'll be refunded for the excess that's held on your credit card by the hire car company .

Excess insurance also usually covers other possible costs, like cleaning, towing, admin fees and misfuelling costs.

Rental car excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an insurance excess held on your card* - this is similar to the excess on domestic car insurance in the UK. The excess on rental cars can be high. It's usually between £1,100 to £3,000. If you decide not to insure the excess you will be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the value of the excess . Check out the Premium Cover rental car options if you'd prefer not to have a large amount blocked on your card .

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The rentals on our site include a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be required to hold a deposit for fuel on your credit card when you collect the car. Ensure that you fill the car up and drop it off full and there's no additional fees for fuel.

You might see full to empty fuel policies on other websites that seem to be offering cheaper deals. Always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as the refuelling and admin fees associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it much more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

CDW (Collision damage waiver)

It provides insurance protection for damage in the same way the insurance cover you have on your own car does. It includes an excess amount which you can cover with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). We also include cars on the site that include CDW with no excess amount

Extra driver fees

A car hire agreement is between the hire car company and the one person who signs the agreement and will be the main driver. This means you need to ask for any other drivers to be added, this usually comes with a cost (which can be up to £12a day ). We often list special offers that include extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the price.

How to rent a car with Global Rent A Car including Unlimited Mileage;

We offer both limited and unlimited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals can often be less expensive than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage limit will always be clearly visibile. If you decide to book a rental including limited mileage, you'll be liable to pay an additional fee if you go above the daily allowance. The mileage allowance for the whole rental duration is calculated as (the number of hire days X the daily mileage allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily limit on every day, provided that the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't go over the number of days X the daily limit.

If you decide to book a limited mileage rental, it's receommended to check the fees for excess mileage. You can find these in our T&Cs.

Global Rent A Car Car Hire without a credit card

We also compare car hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection.

You can also find a breakdown of all additional fees on the payment page.

Global Rent A Car Car Hire with Cross Border Fees Included

If you want to collect your car hire and take it over the border into a different country, you should always check the terms and conditions. Most car hire providers require that you let them know on collection; and will charge additional fees to top up the insurance. If you do not let them know, it's possible that your rental will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You can find the information relating to cross border charges and fees by checking the Rental terms and checking the Cross Border Rules section.

If you're struggling to find the cross border terms and conditions please get in touch with our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Hiring a car with Global Rent A Car without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card;

The insurance excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The excess on rental cars can be expensive. It's normally between £900 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the vehicle, the insurance excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount isn't charged to your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You don't usually have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount is fully refunded to your card without anything further to pay.

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

To view rental options with a £0 or reduced excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.
