Security Deposit: There is a Security Deposit required on each car for which processing is required the day before delivery of the hired car. The Credit Card is not charged, it is merely preauthorised and acts as the excess, for example should you damage the car or you incur speeding or parking fines. Liability for each and every accident involving any damage to, or loss of the vehicle, and/or third party vehicle during the rental period depends on the insurance excess for that vehicle and conditions will apply. Any damage found to the vehicle resulting in further investigation will require the deposit being frozen until checks are carried out and we reserve the right to do so. Security deposits will be held in fault or non-fault accidents until the outcome of the accident is determined and the hirer will be responsible for the excess on the policy and or the damage and costs. Piston Leg Events Ltd will not be held responsible for anyone driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, causing wilful damage, off road driving or driving without due care and attention. You as the renter accept full responsibility in respect of such claims.

The full amount of the hire is payable in the event of cancellation with less than 14 days notice. We do not allow refunds in the event of the hire contract being terminated early. We suggest that the vehicle is booked only for the period required. If the hirer wishes to extend the rental, he/she must advise us directly. Failure to do this can result in the withdrawal of insurance cover.
We sometimes may act as a broker for third party supplier of a vehicle. This means that the contract for the supply of that vehicle could be between you and the third party supplier. In most cases standard terms apply, however there may be additional terms and conditions governing the contract as each supplier will have specific terms and conditions relating to that particular vehicle. Signing of the confirmation letter does not form a contract between you and Piston leg Events Ltd, but only a confirmation that you are accepting the hire terms that have been relayed to you by Piston Leg Events Ltd on behalf of the supplier. If the contract for the car hire is between you and the supplier any queries or concerns that may arise, in particular with reference to damages, extra mileage, security deposits etc. are the responsibility of the car supplier. If your car rental contract is not with Piston Leg Events Ltd but with a third party supplier, we may pass your credit card details and any other essential booking details to that third party. The placing of an order for car hire by you will constitute consent to us passing on such details should we deem necessary. If there are any changes to the details supplied to us by you it is your responsibility to inform Piston Leg Events Ltd as soon as possible. Piston Leg Events Ltd cannot accept liability for any charges incurred as a result of documentation signed for and accepted locally. You agree that Piston Leg Events Ltd is in no way responsible for the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of information and services rendered by any third party supplier. Your interaction with any of our third party suppliers is at your own risk, and Piston Leg Events Ltd will have no liability with respect to the acts, omissions, errors, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any third party suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting from your interactions with them.
