When you book with GoCarHire.co.uk, you don’t actually book a specific car, but a vehicle category. Then, when you go to pick up your car, you’ll often have a choice of cars in that class. If you 100% want a specific car, you’ll have to make this request directly to the rental company once your booking has been made. They’ll be happy to assist you – however it will depend on availability at your pick up location. If the exact make or model of vehicle you saw during the booking process is not available, you’ll get an equivalent alternative.
When you book with GoCarHire.co.uk, your reservation is submitted to the rental brand that you chose. Once it’s confirmed, you’ll receive an email letting you know, including your rental voucher – this usually happens within a few hours. You’ll need this voucher to pick up the car. If you don’t receive your voucher, please contact us.
You can use a number of payment methods to book the car, but currently you need to present a credit card when you pick up the car. If you don’t provide a credit card at the rental desk, the car rental company reserves the right not to deliver the car, and GoCarHire.co.uk can’t be held responsible.
For booking, you can use a number of different credit and debit cards. Car rental agents require a credit card in the driver's name. This is because a deposit is required which is not collected by the credit card until the car is returned. Always check that the credit card has enough credit when you pick up the car. If you don’t produce a credit card when you pick up the car, it isn’t possible to get a refund. So make sure you bring a credit card!
In this case the owner of the credit card must register as a main driver even if not driving the car and will have to add an additional driver that will he or she who will guide. In the event that the owner does not possess a valid driver's license, the car will not be granted because this scenario would not be in line with the conditions of hire.
If you wish to modify or cancel your reservation, simply enter your details on our Manage My Booking section. If you need further help, please contact us.
Please contact the rental brand that provides the car. You will find the contact information on the voucher and / or your rental agreement.

In the event of an accident you should do the following: - Get the complete details of the people involved in the accident, as well as any possible witnesses. - Provide the car hire agent with all the details regarding the incident. - Inform the authorities immediately if the third party should be investigated or in the case of injury. - Do not leave the vehicle without taking proper precautions. - No refund will be made for loss rental time if the vehicle is involved in an accident.
On GoCarHire.co.uk there is no age limit, providing you’ve had your licence at least 1 year. There is a surcharge for young drivers (under 25 years old depending on the car rental supplier) that is not included in the total price displayed at the time of booking on GoCarHire.co.uk, but it is specified in the Rental Conditions. The sum has to be paid at the car rental office at the time of pick-up.
The additional driver can be added to the check-in desk car rental. All additional drivers must be present at pick-up and must have a valid driver's license to sign the rental agreement. Please note that all additional extras and additional drivers are all paid at the local rental office before collecting the vehicle.
In insurance policies, the relief consists of a reimbursement by the insured for damages caused to third parties in the event of a claim. The deductible can range from 200 to 1600 GBP and depends on the type of car, the options and above all by the rental. This exemption can be completely demolished by signing an additional insurance policy as the Zero Gap offered by GoCarHire.co.uk or that offered by its rental agency, but the latter is considerably less convenient than the Zero Gap.

Drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year / s, and must not have committed a serious infringement of the highway code. For UK licences, you’ll need a full licence – and be sure to bring both the card and the paper counterpart with you. If the driver's license is not in the Latin alphabet (eg Arabic, Greek, Russian or Chinese), they will need a valid international driving license (IDL International Driving License). The international driver's license must be accompanied by the original driving license of the driver.
When you arrive to pick up your car, you must present your printed voucher. If you don’t have the voucher with you, there may be more fees charged, and we are not able to provide a refund. Please don’t rely that you can bring the voucher up on your phone or tablet - make sure you print your voucher, bring it with you and keep it safe.
