Pre-book your car hire extras and you'll make collecting your car that bit quicker when you arrive too. You can choose Premium Cover for added protection against those unexpected eventualities. You can guarantee the infant and child seats you require are there waiting for you. Or you can be better prepared to navigate your trip, whether that's adding GPS or Wi-Fi, winter tyres or snow chains, or selecting an additional driver so you can share longer drives. You can also earn Avios on Premium Cover and any car exras booked.
For complete peace of mind we offer Premium Cover including Super Collision Damage Waiver to reduce your excess, or to protect and support you in the event of an accident or vehicle breakdown. Or Super Theft Protection if your vehicle is stolen.
Infant and child seats are guaranteed when you pre-book. We offer options suitable from birth to four years, and booster seats for those up to 12 years.
If you're anticipating some wintry weather on the roads, or you're driving to the slopes, get prepared and pre-book before you go. Winter tyres are required by law during certain times of the year and snow chains can offer an extra level of reassurance. A ski or snowboard rack may come in useful too.
You can pre-book GPS sat navs or mobile Wi-Fi so you can avoid roaming charges. The Roadside Safety Net covers non-mechanical mishaps like having a flat tyre. Or you can add additional drivers so you can break up the journey and enjoy a stress-free rental.
