What is going to happen if I cause a damage to the rental car?
The driver is responsible for any damage on the rented car. The amount can be up to the blocked deposit on your credit card. For any accident caused, you will need to get a police report. Please also contact directly the local rental car agency. They will instruct you what is the procedure. If you don't have taken out any extra insurance, you might be charged up to the deposit amount blocked on your credit card. If you have a full comprehensive refund insurance, please ask for the invoice of the damage by the local company. With the invoice, you can request a refund by the insurance.
For how long I need to hold my drivers license in order to rent a car in Queenstown?
The most suppliers require a valid drivers license for at least one year. Some agencies can ask you to provide a drivers license which is valid for more, for instance, two or even three years. We always strongly recommend our clients to see the terms and conditions for selected agency and car and read them carefully. At the time of rental, your driver license needs to have the required time of validity. This is a mandatory document and if you fail to provide it, the agent refuses to give you the car due to an invalid drivers license.
How long it takes to unblock the deposit?
There is a security deposit blocked on your credit card meanwhile the rental. It will be unblocked on the safe return of the car. In case of any damages caused during your car rental period, a certain amount can be discounted from your deposit. The amount of blocked security deposit may last up to 20 working days to appear back on your credit card. This process totally depends on the banks involved. If 20 days passed and you still not see the security deposit amount at your account we recommend contacting car rental agency direct.
How old are the cars?
As an online car rental broker, we are not able to specify the construction year of the car that you will receive. The exact car makes, models and construction year cannot be guaranteed and are subject to availability. The vehicles you see online are examples based on the most common vehicle in the fleet for each category. The vehicles are provided technically in perfect conditions. We choose our car rental providers carefully and see that they always update they car fleet. However, the standards of the cars also depend on the country where you would like to rent the car. We can confirm the size of the car and the options you have chosen.
Is it possible to pick up my car late at night?

actual superficial body damage on car didn't match that recorded on form...the reality was more so I had to go back to office to sort out which was annoying because if I hadn't perhaps I might have been accused at a later date?
