All our customers are welcome to re-schedule a booking within the 6 months after the original hire date free of charge.

Excess & Security Deposit

(A) As a security bond
(B) As payments towards any mechanical damage which is not covered by our Insurers, eg, tyres, wheels, clutch, gearbox and which was sustained during the hire period, excluding normal wear and tear, due to misuse and abuse.
(C) As an insurance excess against any accidental damage or loss caused to the vehicle by a third party or the hirer. The hirer is liable for the amount shown as Excess Deposit. Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is available to reduce this. Please see below.
(D) Additional charges incurred during hire for excess mileage and, or, petrol reimbursement charges. The Excess Security Deposit is as per the tariff.

Liability:

Love Classics liability is limited to a refund of the hire charge. No consequential loss liability will be covered.

Collision Damage Waiver:

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) reduces your liability against accidental damage to the car, including theft and vandalism, regardless of who is at fault. At a nominal extra charge CDW is now available and if accepted, the liability will reduce as detailed below. This facility is restricted to UK Driving Licence holders only and is not available for one-day hire contracts, when travelling abroad, or any of the cars subject to a higher excess than £1,000.
CDW: Original Excess £500 - Reduces to £175 on payment of additional CDW at £50* per weekend or £100* per week. Original Excess £1000  Reduces to £300 on payment of additional CDW at £75* per weekend or £150* per week.

 

Use of Vehicle

The hirer may use the vehicle for the purpose of their business and for social domestic and pleasure purposes. The vehicles may not be used for any purposes for which they are not expressly designed. Further, the hirer will not use or permit the vehicles to be used for hire, driving tuition, towing, racing or pace-making, or for competing in any rally, or any other form of motor sport, track days, or for any illegal purpose whatsoever.

Petrol

You will be provided with a full tank of petrol and the vehicle must be returned with a full tank. If, however, this is not the case any reimbursement for petrol will be charged at the pump price, plus £60 administration charge.

Overseas Travel

Please note our cars can't be taken out of the UK. Prior notification is required so that overseas insurance and RAC Cover can be arranged. There will be an additional charge for this, and the Security Deposit will be doubled. Our vehicles are tracked and we will be notified if any of our fleet enters a geo-dome located with half a mile of any port, airport and race track within the UK. The vehicle will then be turned shutdown remotely if we believe you are intending you leave the country. This void your rental agreement, resulting in a loss of your Security Deposit.

1 full day midweek covers from 9am to 9am the following day. Single weekend hirer covers from 10am to 9am the following day.
