You must not let anyone work on the Car without our permission. (See section below for what to do if the Car develops a fault)
You must take all of your personal belongings with you when you return the Car.

Booking and Charges
To secure a booking the Hirer must complete the Hirer Information document, and if applicable the additional driver form, and return them with the agreed deposit. The deposit is non-refundable if the Hirer cancels the hire. Two weeks before the hire is due to start we require photocopies of the appropriate driving licence(s) and payment of the balance. Delivery and collection details and charges will also be confirmed at this time.

The Club reserves the right to substitute an equivalent car if the booked car becomes unavailable.

Additional Charges will be payable for:

  • any liabilities (as noted above) incurred while on hire
  • additional mileage - a charge of £3.00 per mile above the allowance applies
  • any excess charge (see below) which is applied in respect of each occurrence of damage.
  • a refuelling charge if the Car is not returned full.
  • a reasonable cleaning charge if the Car is returned in a dirty condition.

Credit Card details will be required BEFORE the hire begins and will be used if additional charges are to be made after the hire is completed.

What to do if the Car develops a fault or breaks down
All cars have Breakdown Service cover and for an easily diagnosed problem the Breakdown Service may be contacted directly. However some problems with these interesting cars are sometimes difficult to diagnose and so we provide an emergency number for our mechanic who may assist in the diagnosis and thus expedite the repair before the Breakdown Service is called.
If the mechanic or the Breakdown Service cannot correct the fault and the Car has to be returned to us, then we (the Club) may either provide a replacement vehicle via the Breakdown Service (which will not be of Club style) or if availability and geography allow, provide a replacement vehicle from Edinburgh.

What to do if the Car is in an accident or stolen or lost

  • Notify the police immediately if another party's guilt has been ascertained or if people or animals are injured or if the Car is stolen.
  • Report it to the Club and in case of damage, provide a detailed report and diagram to the Club within 24 hours .
  • You must not admit responsibility.
  • You must collect names & addresses of everyone involved and give them to us.
  • You must not abandon the Car without adequate provision for safeguarding and securing it.
  • You must tell us if there are to be legal proceedings and provide us with paperwork and  further details if we require them.
  • In the event of the theft of a Club Car, obtain a crime report number and, immediately thereafter, report the theft and the crime report information to the Club.
  • You must return the original keys if the Car is stolen or lost.

You agree that we may process any data given by you for the purposes of keeping accounts and records and verify personal, driving and credit information provided by you or any additional driver details with the DVLA or credit agencies.
We will destroy credit information when all payments are cleared.
