Frequently asked questions

Do cookies mean I could get cold calls or junk mail?
We never use the data gathered through cookies to contact you via post, email or phone. We may use cookies to show you subtly tailored content on our site of things we think you might be interested in, but only in relation to Car Hire UK products and services. You will never see advertising on our website from anyone other than Car Hire UK group companies and our agents.

Can cookies pass on my personal information to others?
The only time we may share personal information gathered through cookies, is when you have given us express consent to do so by applying for a product or service. For example, if you were applying for car hire excess cover, we'd inform you that we'd be passing your details to our trusted car hire excess insurance policy provider.

The cookies we use are completely safe and secure. In fact, many of them are used purely to provide important security features such as protecting your data and your accounts.
