In making this rental you accept the terms of the Rental Agreement and conï¬rm that you will strictly comply with them.
1. NATURE OF THIS AGREEMENT
The rights and obligations contained in this Rental Agreement govern your use of our vehicle and are not transferable by you. You acknowledge that the vehicle is owned by us and that any attempted transfer or sub-rent of the vehicle by anyone other than us is void. We permit you to use the vehicle on the terms and conditions of this Rental Agreement only.
2. WHO MAY DRIVE THE VEHICLE
2.1 The vehicle must only be driven by you or any other person who has ï¬rst been authorised by us and added to the Rental Agreement. You agree that you will not allow anyone to drive the vehicle, including yourself:
2.1.1 who does not fulï¬l our minimum requirements regarding age and possession of a valid driving licence as indicated for the relevant rate or otherwise notiï¬ed by us; or
2.1.2 who is over-tired or under the inï¬‚uence of alcohol, drugs, medication or any other legal or illegal substance impairing their consciousness or ability to react.
3. PICK-UP, DELIVERY AND RETURN

If you return the vehicle outside of these hours, you must comply with the out of hours return instructions for that location, in which case you will remain fully responsible for the vehicle until the location re-opens for business. If you fail to comply with these instructions, you will remain responsible for the vehicle until we are able to access it.
