Important Disclosure

We act as a disclosed agent for third party suppliers. This means that the contract for the car hire is between you and the supplier. Although in most cases standard terms apply, there will often be additional terms and conditions governing the contract as each supplier will have specific terms and conditions relating to that particular vehicle. You will be provided with the terms and conditions in each case when we provide you with the details of the quote. Please make sure that you have read these terms and conditions before signing and returning your confirmation letter.

All luxury car hire deals made through Coral Luxury Hire are not an offer from Coral Luxury Hire to hire that particular vehicle, but an invitation to you to accept an offer from our suppliers. You are free to accept that offer or to reject it and we are empowered to pass that acceptance on to the supplier.  Signing of the confirmation letter does not form a contract between you and Coral Luxury Hire, but only a confirmation that you are accepting the hire terms that have been relayed to you by Coral Luxury Hire on behalf of the supplier.

Because the contract for the car hire is between you and the supplier any queries or concerns that may arise (in particular with reference to damages, extra mileage, security deposits etc) are the responsibility of the car supplier.

As your car rental contract is not with Coral Luxury Hire but with a third party supplier, Coral Luxury Hire may pass your credit card details and any other essential booking details to that third party. The placing of an order for car hire by you will constitute consent to us passing on such details should we deem necessary.

You undertake to us that the details you give to us are correct in particular that the credit card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the car hire and any related charges.

If there are any changes to the details supplied to us by you it is your responsibility to inform Coral Luxury Hire as soon as possible.
