When you complete your rental and return the vehicle, we will charge your card and the pre-authorisation hold will be released by your card issuer. Depending on your card issuer, it can take up to 28 days before this is reflected in your account balance. As the pre-authorisation hold is not a charge, the release of funds may not appear on your card statement. Please note – even though the hold is not an actual charge, it still temporarily reduces the available balance on your payment card until its release.

In case of any further queries, please use the contact button and link below to submit a ticket with our customer care team and you will receive an email with the details of your authorisation hold.


AdBlue is a diesel engine additive found in most of our diesel vehicles which helps to reduce NOx emissions.

Each vehicle fitted with AdBlue is also equipped with a warning light, which signals the next exhaustion of the additive. The remaining level will be indicated directly by the vehicle instrumentation. It is important to remember that the exhaustion of AdBlue causes the vehicle to be inoperable. Thus, when the warning light comes on, it is advisable to refuel AdBlue immediately.

Refueling can be done free of charge by going to one of our branches, facilities or affiliated networks or any gas station, before payment. In the latter case, the amount will be refunded and deducted from the amount due for the rental, upon return, upon presentation of an invoice.
