Need some help?

We want you to enjoy as much freedom as possible - the road is yours, after all.

It is possible for UK rental cars (but not vans) to leave the UK mainland, though it is your responsibility to ensure you are able to comply with the regulations in the countries you intend to travel through.

You can drive your hire car from the UK into mainland Europe, but you will need to take out Continental Cover first. This insures you to drive abroad. It also provides breakdown assistance. You can't book Continental Cover online, so please call us at least five days before driving abroad so we can arrange it for you. You'll find our phone number in your email confirmation. We recommend returning your car to the same location you collect it from, because dropping it at another location will cost more.

See the full list of locations on the Continental Cover page.

If you are looking to travel between various other European countries, please review the location specific terms and conditions for the country and location from which you are hiring.


Don't forget to review the terms and conditions when you book, which include everything you need to know ahead of your journey.
