Fuel included

Many of our competitors charge extra for fuel, which can produce a hefty extra charge (£90 per week is typical) at the end of a holiday. We have stayed fuel inclusive, and our customers say they much prefer this.

Damage waiver included

Worth £50, this removes your liability for damage or third party claims (except wilful damage - see Condition 9.3).

Optional extras

Not everyone needs these, but some of you will: extra adults, extra pets, towels, guides and maps for planning at home, taxi transfer for one way trips.
