Collecting your car

Your vehicle will be sitting outside the terminal and we shall assist with all baggage where possible. We will carry out a pre-rental inspection with you, noting any damage to the vehicle inside or out. As with all rentals please be sure to carry out a thorough inspection at this point with our officer. You will now be asked to sign agreeing the vehicle condition before setting off.

We will give you a quick guide to the operation of the car and its controls. If you have any queries about the car, driving, destinations or any other matter we will be delighted to help you.
