Are there any mileage restrictions?

Rentals – The weekly allowance is 850 miles with a £0.20p per mile over limit charge.

Rent to Buy – The weekly allowance is 800 miles with a £0.20p per mile over limit charge however with a Rent to Buy car, if you exceed the limit you’ll be charged on a monthly basis but your contract length will be shortened meaning you’ll own the car quicker! You won’t pay more than the agreed price set out in the contract.

Rentals – Fully Comprehensive ‘Hire and Reward’ cover is included as standard.

Rent to Buy – Insurance is NOT included.

If we’ve provided cover, usually £500 depending on the vehicle and your circumstances but this will be clearly stated on your rental agreement.

Where do I collect and return the car?

Instead of having to collect your rental from us, we’ll deliver the car to you and drop you home upon it’s return! How’s that for service?!

Rent to Buy cars are delivered to your door!

What is the minimum age to drive?

You have to be at least 25 years old.

I live deep in the countryside. Can you help?

Rentals are available ONLY in Cardiff & Newport.

Rent to Buy is available across mainland UK so even if you live in John O’ Groats or Lands End – We can deliver!

Can I order a Rent to Buy car with different specification to the models you offer?

Unfortunately not. To ensure a continuous supply from the car manufacturers, we place orders months in advance so the models we offer cannot deviate.

What happens when a Service is due?

For Rental and Rent to Buy customers – When your car requires a service, just visit the SERVICE CENTRE section of this website, fill in your details and a service advisor will be in touch within 48 hours to confirm your booking. It’s as simple as that!

Do you offer any 'prestige' vehicles, such as Mercedes-Benz?

At this time we only offer Hybrid and Full Electric cars from manufacturers such as Toyota and Nissan.

What happens in the event of an accident or breakdown?

If we’ve provided cover, an assistance pack containing such information is located in the car glovebox. This information is also available in our DRIVER SUPPORT section.

I want to work with a private hire company, who handles the paperwork?

We can either supply you with copies of the relevant vehicle documentation (licence, insurance, MOT, etc) or the company you intend to work with on your behalf so you can get to work in the soonest of time.

What happens if I want to cancel my Rent to Buy Contract?

After 3 months you can cancel with 4 weeks notice but you will lose all your rental payments up to that point. Your mileage must not exceed the 800 miles per week limit up to the date of cancellation. If it does, you will be liable for the excess mileage charges.

What happens if I want to cancel my Rent to Buy Contract having had a 'fault' accident?

If you had a fault accident whilst in a Rent to Buy Contract and wish to cancel, you will be liable for the full insurance premium.

I operate a taxi / private hire business. Can I rent vehicles from you to 'sub-rent' to my drivers?

We are pleased to announce we are now able to offer this facility subject to terms and conditions. As this works a little differently to a standard rental, it’s best to contact us to discuss your requirements so we can help you choose the best option to suit your business.
