No, once you have confirmed your reservation booking, the price will not change unless the booking is amended. Any reservations made for destinations outside of the UK are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates, however the price in the local currency (e.g. € EUR) will not change.

Some destinations are subject to a premium location surcharge, this fee is included within the rate shown unless otherwise stated.

9.     What is a Prepaid reservation?

A prepaid reservation requires full payment for your rental at the time the booking is made, whether you confirmed your booking online (via our website), through an third party Agency (paid to the Agency) or with our Reservations team on the telephone. Normally the prepaid rate is less than the pay on arrival price.


If you cancel a prepaid booking, a cancellation fee will apply and this could be up to the full cost of your rental.
