Please note that no UK rental vehicle is allowed to leave the UK mainland, including Northern Ireland until further notice. 


Renting in the UK and planning to take your hire car across the channel or to Ireland? You'll need to take out our Continental Cover.

Please note that Continental Cover is only available at selected UK car hire locations and you may only take the vehicle to specified countries (listed below).

To arrange cover, please give our reservations hotline a ring at least five days ahead of collection.
