(d) Whilst we make every effort to provide you your first choice of vehicle within your booked category, due to operational reasons we reserve the right to offer you a suitable alternative or replacement vehicle at any point during your rental period. The substitution of an alternative vehicle due to unforeseen circumstances is not a breach of contract and does not result in a refund.

(h) Vouchers will only be awarded from the day you first contact us about the issue until the issue is rectified, or the end of your Rental Period, whichever comes soonest. Vouchers cannot be applied retrospectively. If you fail to notify us or cooperate, you acknowledge that the issue is either resolved or of such a minor nature to you that it has a negligible impact on your holiday.

For example, if you miss a payment and we do not contact you, but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
