How Rental Days are Calculated

All rentals are calculated per calendar day. When calculating the number of days a vehicle is rented, the day of pick up is counted as day one of the rental, regardless of pick up time. The day of the vehicles return is counted as the final day of the rental. When a rental moves from one rate season to the next, the calculation is based on both rates.

Cancellation & Amendments

You must put any request to Cancel or Amend in writing or we cannot action. The date of the email will determine the following Cancellation fees:

  • If cancelled up to 60 days prior to pick up = Loss of deposit paid
  • If cancelled from 59 to 35 days prior to pick-up = $100 plus loss of deposit paid
  • If cancelled 34 to 14 days prior to pick-up = 20% of the rental cost plus $350
  • If cancelled 13 to 1 days prior to pick-up = 70% of the rental cost or $600 (whichever is greater)
  • If cancelled within 24 hours of pickup or No-Show = 100% (Including any applicable One Way fees)
  • If vehicle is returned early there is no refund available for the unused days and a No Show is considered as 100% Cancellation.

Note: an amendment of the booking dates or vehicle type after a booking has been confirmed may be treated as a cancellation and the appropriate fees will apply.

Amendments are charged at a rate of $100 per change. This applies but is not limited to changing the client name, vehicle type, reducing the number of rental days, changing the pickup dates or locations. No refund given on the initial deposit paid.

If an amendment is made to the rental whereby the length of hire is shortened, no refund will be given on the initial deposit amount. In addition, if an amendment is made inside 14 days of pick up, the rental will be charged at the number of days originally booked. A relocation fee may also apply if the collection or return location is amended.

Where the hire is being extended, the amendment fee will not apply.
