We’ve recently reviewed our standard pre-authorisation amount which covers any additional costs resulting from your rental such as additional days or fuel. As a result the pre-authorisation is now £200 plus the estimated cost of your rental (less any prepaid amount).What is Pre-Authorisation?
What does this mean for me?
1: At the point you collect your vehicle and start your rental, we will put a temporary hold of a pre-authorisation amount of £200 plus the estimated cost of your rental (less any prepaid amount) against the available balance on your payment card.
2: When you complete your rental and return the vehicle, the pre-authorisation funds will be released by your card issuer.
3: Depending on your card issuer, it can take up to 14 working days before this is reflected in your account balance.
Please note: even though a pre-authorisation is not an actual charge, it will temporarily reduce the available balance on your payment card.
