If you are searching for and booking car hire, please follow the steps below:

You can search for pick-up and drop-off locations by entering a city name, airport name, landmark or post code. The search results will be returned with car hire offers within the vicinity to the location entered in ascending price order.

The address of the pick-up and drop-off location is displayed for each result. Select the downward arrow next to 'More info' to display a map of the pick-up/drop-off location.

The icons provide a quick summary of the vehicles features:

  • Passenger capacity

  • Baggage capacity

  • Transmission type - Manual or Automatic

  • The number of doors

  • If the vehicle has Air Conditioning

Your can use the filters on the right-hand side to narrow down the available options.

With some car hire companies, certain surcharges must be paid by the driver at the point of collecting the vehicle. If this is the case, it will be indicated under the price. The message indicates the type of surcharge and the amount payable. The overall price at this stage includes these surcharges, so that results can be easily compared.

Once you've found a car hire product you're interested in, choose the 'Select vehicle' button.

You will now see the available packages with a summary of what's included.

  • Unlimited mileage means there's no limit in place on the mileage that can be driven during the rental. Where unlimited mileage is not included, a fixed amount of miles will be included per day or per rental, with a per mile surcharge applicable for any mileage exceeding the fixed limit

  • Third party liability covers damage to other vehicles and property

  • Collision damage waiver covers damage to the vehicle being hired

  • Theft protection covers theft of the vehicle being hired

  • Additional driver means a named additional driver can be added without any additional charge

  • Free cancellation allows cancellation at any time without any penalty

Where coverage is included in the rate, there is often an excess. This means that the driver will be required to pay up to the excess amount if there is an incident that results in a claim. For this reason, car hire companies also normally require the driver to present a credit card to cover a security deposit. This is normally held as an preliminary authorisation on the credit card that's released once the vehicle is returned without any damage.

Click Travel have a special arrangement with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car rental where most rates do not require a deposit from the driver when collecting the vehicle. In this instance, all charges, including costs up to the access amount for damage, fines and parking tickets will be charged back to the organisation making the booking. These rates state 'No deposit' on the search results page and you can use the filters to display only the results where no deposit is required.

To see the full terms and conditions for the car rental, select the 'More info' link.

Where there's a choice of packages, choose the one that best meets your needs by selecting the 'Add to basket' button. You can then search and add to your basket any other travel products you require and then proceed to checkout when you're ready to book.
