  • How much is the pre-authorisation in Sardinia?
    Generally in Sardinia, the amount of the pre-authorisation is calculated based on: The estimated vehicle rental price. Plus the estimated price of all optional extras you've requested. Plus around 100 EUR to allow for any fuel you may use unless you have purchased Fuel up Front package. Less any amount we accept you have paid towards the rental when you booked, for example the cost of any accepted vouchers.
  • Can I pay with a debit card?
    Yes. You can pay using Visa and MasterCard debit cards. PREPAID cards are accepted online however they are not accepted at the counter which means a non-PREPAID card must be shown at the rental station (together with the PREPAID card). A PREPAID card can be used to pay for the rental at the end of the vehicle hire. Remember, the name on the card must match the driving licence of the main driver. Someone else can't pay on your behalf. And don't forget to bring your payment card when you collect your rental.

    If you cannot find your rental car, which can happen especially at major sardinia airports, please ask for assistance from our staff. You can reach them personally at the counter on site or by phone using the number provided on your booking confirmation.
  • Do you charge a premium for fuel when the vehicle is returned not full?
    Our policy usually dictates that we will supply customers with a full tank of fuel at the beginning of their rental. Customers are also expected to return the vehicle with a full tank (or at the same level as the vehicle was picked up. If you don’t have the time to refuel, we can do it for you but please keep in mind that this will incur an additional fee.
  • What happens if I receive a fine?
    When a traffic offence occurs, we are notified by the relevant authorities as the registered owner of the vehicle in order to identify the driver of the vehicle. Whenever possible, liability is transferred to the driver of the vehicle at the time of the offence and the authorities re-issue the Penalty/Parking Charge Notice to the driver. We charge an administration fee to cover our costs involved in this process. Following a liability transfer, the authorities contact the driver directly by post with the re-issued fine. Rest assured, the dates of fine payment are updated so that the driver is not affected by the time taken to transfer liability. In some circumstances, liability cannot be transferred and the fine is paid on your behalf by us. The lowest possible fine amount is paid and is charged directly to the customer. Please note, to dispute an offence, the authorities must be contacted directly. Details of the dispute process and all contact details for the authority will be detailed on the re-issued penalty charge notice that you will receive.

  • Can I return my hire car outside office hours?
    We understand you may need to return your hire vehicle when we're not here, especially if you're flying from an airport during the night.

Please remember you are responsible for the condition of your hire vehicle until we check it. When you collect your hire vehicle, we'll let you know where to park it on your return.
  • I’m going to return my hire car later than agreed. Is this OK?
    We understand you might get delayed, so we try to be flexible. If you're running late or need to extend your car rental, please make sure you contact us soon as possible. Should you return the vehicle late - without notifying us or extending your hire - you may be subject to a late return fee. If you fail to extend the rental and you are more than 29 minutes late returning the vehicle, your rental will be extended and you will be charged an extra day's rental at current pay at location prices plus a late return processing fee for each day or part of a day until the vehicle is returned. If you overrun past your agreed return date and time, you will incur a late return fee. If you still haven't returned the vehicle 24 hours later, then another late return fee will be applied. A late return fee will continue to be added every 24 hour period thereafter, until you return the vehicle to the rental station.
