Suppliers can refuse to provide a vehicle to any customer who is, in their opinion, unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. in such circumstances your contract with us will terminate immediately, and we will have no further liability to you.

The car shown on your voucher is for guidance only and may be substituted for an alternative similar or upgraded car (at no extra cost). If you are dissatisfied in any way with the standard of the car, you must advise the local supplier immediately and FASTCarhire.co.uk in writing within 28 days of your return. FASTCarhire.co.uk cannot accept liability where this procedure is not followed.

In the event of any mechanical difficulties or accidents involving your car, it is important that details are reported to your local supplier within 24 hours. you must also complete an accident form by the end of the rental period. local police should also be notified in the case of accidents and a signed police report obtained. full details of third parties should also be obtained. authority to repair or replace a vehicle must be given by your local supplier whose name and contact details are shown on your voucher and rental agreement. you should retain copies of all rental documentation in the event an insurance company is involved. compensation cannot be considered when this procedure is not followed. a checkout form must be signed on return of the vehicle. failure to do so may delay the investigation of disputes regarding insurance excess charges.
Picking up Your Vehicle
Please carefully check the vehicle for any scratches etc, and report and malfunction immediately.
Return of Vehicle
Please allow enough time to return vehicle to the right place - it has been known for people to leave the vehicle in the short term multi story car park, and the rental company taking days to find it, and then the client gets upset when they get a bill for hundreds of pounds!
