Frequently asked questions
Do cookies mean I could get cold calls or junk mail?
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.

How cookies make our website safer and easier to use
Cookies are used for a variety of reasons, such as to safeguard your privacy when browsing the site. They allow you to use functions such as being able to find and compare quotes and use secure online booking forms. If you leave a secure session window open when logged in to Car Hire UK, cookies will enhance your security by prompting you to end, and/or automatically ending, your secure session.
Cookies can also allow us to tailor the content of our website to suit your interests. For example, instead of displaying promotional messages about products you already have, they let us show you other services you may be interested in.
Finally, we use 'analytics' cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don't like and how we can improve things for you.
When we include links to other websites, please bear in mind they will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies as Car Hire UK is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.
