9. MAKING A RESERVATION

Article 12

The user is informed that the execution and payment of the reservation through the reservation system can be done in two ways:

  • A deposit payment – such payment is made only partially at the time of reservation and the balance is paid upon delivery of the vehicle by the car hire service provider
  • Payment of the whole amount at the time of reservation, with an additional payment to the car hire service provider for any additional costs and fuel (fully prepaid bookings)

The method of payment is not user selectable, since it depends on the location and/or selected car hire service provider. The method of payment is indicated in each individual car hire offer.

If any payment is required prior to the completion of the reservation process, the reservation system shall advise the user. In such an event, the user is required to pay the balance to the car hire service provider directly. However, the user is always responsible for the payment of additional services/costs that were requested by the user, and is also responsible for all other costs related to hiring a vehicle or vehicle lessor.

To be able to use the car hire service provided through the reservation system, the user must use a credit card owned by the holder of the reservation.
The charge is going to be made in the reservation system's base currency, in GBP (British Pounds). By accepting these terms and conditions, the customer agrees that if the amount is displayed in a different currency to GBP (British Pound), and if the user credit card is being processed in any other currency than GBP, then due to the currency exchange rate, the actual amount charged on their credit card may be different from the amount being displayed on the website. Currency exchange rates in the reservation system are refreshed and uploaded once a day from a third party source and may be different from the current situation on the currency market.
By making a reservation, the user agrees that there are sufficient funds on his/her credit card for reservation to be finalized and that the credit card is charged for the amount of the deposit. If the payment gets declined due to insufficient funds on the credit card, the agent can cancel the booking without any prior notice.



10. AMENDMENTS OF RESERVATION

Article 13

The user can amend certain individual attributes (car driver, address information) of his/her rental reservation online, free of charge, at any point before the rental is due to start.

If the user amend other attributes - something that affects the rental price, such as location, supplier, car group or length of rental – the user will be charged at the current published price, which may be different from what you originally paid.

The user should call the agent if the pick-up time is less than 48 hours away and he/she wish to amend the booking.

Amendments in reservations can be made only through the support application in the reservation system, and the agent cannot guarantee that the changes will be processed.
Amendments cannot be accepted and carried out after the vehicle has already been acquired. The agent is not obliged to reimburse the money to the user in the event of early completion of car hire service.

Extension of the car hire service after the rented vehicle is picked up (a date beyond the date framework on the voucher) may only be conducted with a selected car hire service provider, who shall also charge for the extension. Extension of car hire service before the rental starts (a date that is prior to the date framework on the voucher) may only be conducted in writing through the agent. Changing the booking may trigger a change in rate/price, or an additional charge may be due from a material change, such as the duration or car type.



11. CONFIRMATION AND RESERVATION

Article 14

In the name of a selected car hire service provider, the reservation system will issue a confirmation for each reservation, whereby the agent does not bind itself that the confirmation shall include information on the costs of additional services, local charges and costs charged by the service provider, or on additional services the user may request directly at the time of vehicle acquisition.

The agent recommends that the user checks any information regarding reservations (country, location, rental period). Noting discrepancies, the user must immediately perform changes through the reservation system, or through the agent’s client centre, where the user must provide correct contact detail changes or other corrections.

The agent recommends that the user reads and reviews all rental terms and conditions of the car hire service provider (available in the second step of reservation process in the reservation system, when selecting vehicle type), which may occasionally change without prior notice.

The car hire service provider will execute the user’s reservation only upon receiving confirmation of vehicle reservation. The reservation number, obtained by the user upon confirming reservation, serves as a reference number for all further communication with the agent (questions, reservation changes, cancellation).

 

12. CANCELLATION POLICY

Article 15

If the user wishes to cancel the reservation, he/she must contact the agent in writing by sending an email to customerservice@vehicle-rent.com. Phone cancellations will not be accepted.
Cancellation may be submitted only through the agent's reservation system and not through the selected car hire service provider. The cancellation of a reservation means that the user is also cancelling any additional services that they have reserved through the reservation system. In the event of a cancellation or change in the reservation, the agent shall not be liable for any pecuniary loss resulting from changes in the monetary exchange rate during the time between the original reservation and the subsequent change or cancellation of reservation. For cancellation of reservations made 48 hours or less before pick-up, no money will be refunded.

Cancellation of Fully Prepaid Bookings

  • If the user cancels within 48 hours or more before the rental is due to start, the money paid will be refunded;
  • If the user cancels within less than 48 hours before pick-up, the money paid will be refunded, minus the cost of 3 days' rental;
  • If the user has booked the car for less than 3 days, there will not be any additional charge, but the user will not receive any refund;
  • If the user fails to turn up at the agreed time and date, and/or to provide all the necessary documentation, and/or to provide a credit card with enough available funds on it, the car hire company may refuse the car. If that happens:
  • If the user calls the agent from the counter, the money paid will be refunded, minus the cost of 3 days' rental;
  • If the user does not call the agent from the counter, the user will not receive any refund.

Cancellation of Deposit Bookings

  • If the user cancels 48 hours or more before the rental is due to start, the user will receive a refund of the money paid;
  • If the user cancels less than 48 hours in advance, but before the rental is due to start, the user will receive a refund of the money paid, minus either the deposit or the cost of 3 days' rental, whichever is greater;
  • If the user has booked the car for less than 3 days, there will not be any additional charge, but the user will not receive any refund.

No-Show

A ‘No-show’ is when the user:

  • Wish to cancel but do not inform the agent before the rental is due to start; or
  • Fail to pick the car up at the arranged time and date; or
  • Fail to provide the documentation that’s required to pick the car up; or
  • Fail to provide a valid, acceptable credit card in the main driver’s name with enough available funds on it;


In all of these cases, the user will receive no refund of the money paid.
The car hire company reserves the right to refuse the car to any user who fails to arrive on time with all the necessary documentation and a credit card with enough available funds for the security deposit. In such cases, unless the rental has been cancelled in advance, the user will not be entitled to a refund.

Please note: prices are based on the pick-up and drop-off times and dates that the user arranges before the rental starts. If the user picks the car up any later or brings the vehicle back any earlier, the user will not receive a refund for unused hours or days.

 

13. CANCELLATION PROTECTION

Article 16

The “Cancellation Protection” option allows the user to cancel the booking at no cancellation administration fee (the amount paid for the cancellation protection, and for the separate payment handling charge, is excluded from the amount being refunded). The cost for Cancellation Protection is 1,00 EUR (one Euro) per day. By purchasing it, the user is guaranteed to get back the car rental prepayment no matter what the rental cost and duration is, if the user cancels the booking.

"Cancellation Protection" is not valid:

  1. If the cancellation of booking is received after the rental period has already started.
  2. If the booking is canceled because some of the required documents (e.g. passport, driving licence, valid credit card etc.) are missing or are not valid at the moment of executing a rental agreement on-site.

How to cancel the booking

It is understandable that travel plans may change. In the event that a user wishes to adjust the trip accordingly and wants to cancel the booking, he/she must contact the agent in writing by sending an email to customerservice@vehicle-rent.com. Once this is done, an email confirming that the reservation has been cancelled will be sent shortly. Telephone cancellations will not be accepted.

If the “Cancellation Protection” option has been selected at the time of booking, the user can cancel his/her “Cancellation Protection” option within 24 hours after this additional product has been added to the user’s reservation. The “Cancellation Protection” option can only be ordered at the time of the online reservation.

 

14. SUPER EXCESS REFUND OPTION

Article 17

Super Excess Refund

When the user collects the car, the car hire company will require a security deposit in case the rented car is damaged during the user's rental. As long as the user purchased Super Excess Refund option before the rental began, the agent will waive the user's liability (and refund the user) for any charges withheld from the user's deposit/excess, subject to the terms described here.

The Super Excess Refund protection waiver product is offered to users making new bookings. It will cover the charges for damages to the exterior of the rental car, including:

  • Bodywork, roof, undercarriage
  • Windscreen, windows, mirrors
  • Wheels, tyres, hubcaps
  • Locks


The maximum coverage of the Super Excess Refund is 6,000 EUR (six thousand Euro).

Super Excess Refund will also cover:

  • ‘Immobilization’ charges (for potential loss of revenue that the car hire company suffered while the car was being repaired and was not in position to be hired out)
  • Roadside assistance charges resulting from a breakdown or accident
  • Charges directly related to locking oneself out of the rental car or losing its key(s)
  • The amount the car hire company charges as a result of claiming on the car’s Theft Protection policy
  • Car hire company administration fees related to any of these points

Super Excess Refund will not cover:

  • Repairs not approved by the car hire company
  • Cleaning charges or damage to the interior of the car (unless caused by a collision)
  • Damage to/loss of child seats, GPS devices or other “extra” equipment
  • Damage/mechanical damage to clutch, engine, gearbox, oil pan
  • Costs incurred under circumstances that breach these General Terms and Conditions (such as, but not limited to: dangerous, careless or negligent driving, driving that breaches local regulations, vehicle being driven in unauthorized areas/countries, refuelling errors, vehicle being stolen due to loss of keys and/or documents, commercial use, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, etc.) or the terms of the user’s car rental agreement with the car hire service provider.

If Super Excess Refund cover is purchased, the car hire company will still block the user's credit card with a deposit when the user picks the car up, to cover potential damage to or loss of the rental car – but the Super Excess Refund option by the agent means that the agent has waived the user's liability to pay for the charges detailed here, and the agent will refund the sum withheld from the deposit to cover these charges, subject to the terms described here.

Claiming on Super Excess Refund cover

To make a claim on Super Excess Refund cover, the user has to contact Customer Service within 28 days of dropping the car off. The user will need:

  • The car’s check-in and check-out documents, which clearly show the new damage being charged for by the car hire company
  • Proof of repair cost from the car hire company
  • Evidence of payments deducted from the user's payment card by the car hire company
  • The car hire company’s accident report form
  • A police report, if applicable


We aim to pay in the shortest time possible after we receive all the required documentation.

In cases where a third party has been involved in an accident, the agent requires confirmation from the car hire company that liability for the accident has been determined (and any legal cases settled) before the agent can process the user's claim.
All claim payments are processed onto the payment card used to purchase the Super Excess Refund cover from the agent (not necessarily the payment card charged by the car hire company).

 

15. PRICING

Article 18

The exchange rate of foreign currencies, which the agent uses to display prices in foreign currencies, are constantly updated. Foreign currency exchange rates used by the company managing the user's credit card may vary.

The agent is not responsible for any difference between the indicated price and the amount charged on the user’s credit card as a result of the currency exchange rate used by the company managing the user’s credit card.

 

16. DISCOUNT SCHEME

Article 19

Users collect Loyalty points through purchases of Vehicle Rent services. Every time the user earns additional points, the total amount will be displayed on the user's account automatically when the user is logged in as a user (with a username and password). 
Such Loyalty points are used to decrease the price offered by the reservation system. Once the user is logged in with a username and password, the prices indicated by the reservation system already take into account discounts gained through Loyalty points collected by the user. Such discounts differ between deals and are affected by the car hire service providers selected, car selected, and the like.

 


17. CUSTOMER COMPLAINT PROCEDURE

Article 20

The complaint may be submitted in writing via the website www.vehicle-rent.com within 8 days from the date of returning the vehicle. An appeal received after this period will not be addressed.

The agent will forward the user’s complaint to the car hire vehicle provider. After receiving a reply from the latter, the user will be provided with information on the complaint.

 

18. DISCLAIMER

Article 21

The user agrees that in the event of a breach of obligations under Article 10 of the General Terms and Conditions, the agent may, without notice, terminate the contractual relationship with the user. The agent performs the cancellation by notifying the user via e-mail.

 

19. CHANGES IN GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Article 22

The agent may change and/or supplement these General Terms and Conditions, on which the user will be informed on the website www.vehicle-rent.com or through the reservation system.

A user who does not agree with the changes and/or additions to the General Terms and Conditions must cancel reservations within 3 days of the day before the proposed effective date of the modified and/or supplemented General Terms and Conditions, otherwise it is considered that he/she agrees with the changes or additions to the General Terms and Conditions. The same applies to changes or additions to car hire service prices.

 

20. TEMPORARY AND FINAL PROVISIONS

Article 23

Any disputes or disagreements in these General Terms and Conditions or in connection with their use will be resolved by the user and the agent amicably, otherwise they will be resolved at the competent court in Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU. The dispute shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Slovenia.

The section headings in these General Terms and Conditions are inserted solely for the purpose of transparency and have no influence on the content and interpretation of individual provisions or the contract as a whole. These Terms of Use have been issued in English, French, German, Portugeese, Slovene and Spanish versions. In the event of any dispute, the English version shall prevail. In the event of a discrepancy between the texts in other languages and English texts of these Terms, preference shall be given to the English text.

These General Terms and Conditions have been in force since 2011 and are published on website www.vehicle-rent.com.
