What Currency are the rates quoted in?

Our Quotes will display the currency applicable to the rate available in UK Pounds (GBP).

Do I need a credit card to book a car?

No, you do not need a credit card to make your booking online with Discovery Car Rentals, however you will need a credit card to pay the rental on pick up and to provide a security bond. Full payment is made at the depot upon collection of the vehicle. If you personally do not have a credit card but can get someone to go to the depot to pick up the car that does have a credit card, they can be the main driver and you can sign as an additional driver. Or you can get someone to go into a branch somewhere near them and do an authority to charge their card. The credit card holder must also have a valid non provisional drivers licence in English.

What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle?

A minimum age of 21 years at the time of pickup applies to most companies, however the vehicle type is limited. Drivers under 25 will incur a daily surcharge and in some cases you will not be permitted to reduce your excess if you are under 23.

Hertz for example do not allow anyone under 25 to hire any of their vehicles. Avis and Budget will not include any surcharge in their quote but there is a comment with the cost underneath.

Drivers over 75 years are permitted as long as a full non provisional drivers licence is held. Hertz will require a doctors certificate to be presented at the depot upon collection advising that the hirer is fit to drive.

What happens if I receive a speeding fine or parking fine?

The company you hire from will charge an administration fee on top of the fine or they may supply your information to law enforcement agencies, who will in turn issue a fine to your postal address, and they will still charge a service fee.

We advise if you live outside of the UK that you pay any fines you receive before leaving the country (if you are aware of them). Failure to pay fines received may result in refusal of a hire car, refusal of entry or cancellation of a visa on a return visit.

Can I get a baby seat for my newborn?

You can hire a reversable 5 point harness seat or a booster seat. There are no capsules for hire. Enter full details of your child's age in the comments area.

Can I get an instant quote and book now?

Yes, just enter your rental details on the home page . Rates are automatically and instantly calculated for all car hire companies and will include any applicable one way surcharges, airport taxes etc for that particular depot. Age surcharges for Budget and Avis will not be in the actual total but there will be an amount showing just under the quote.

How do I view my voucher?

Your voucher can be viewed by clicking the retrieve voucher link in the top menu and entering either your confirmation number or your email address. If your email address is correct then a list of your bookings will be displayed and you may select the one that is relevant to you.

Do you have images of the vehicles?

Yes, on the top menu bar you can click different categories to see full range of vehicles offered by all the car rental companies.

Do I get a discount for multiple bookings?

No, there is no further discount, the rates shown on this website are already discounted web rates.

Can I reduce my excess or collision damage payments?

Yes, you can reduce your excess or liability in case of an accident when you pickup your vehicle at the depot. There is no need to advise us at this stage.

What Drivers Licence requirements do you need?

The driver must carry a full drivers licence from their home country. If this is not in English a valid international drivers licence must accompany the original licence. This cannot be probationary or a photocopy, as long as the normal licence is valid and in English it will be accepted.
