A note of the fuel type is marked on the hire contract and on each vehicles fuel cap. Any costs associated with using the wrong fuel is not covered by the insurance.

Please ensure you enter the correct registration number (check the make and model listed is the same as the one on your rental agreement). Please record and keep the receipt details.
For details of the area covered by the zone please consult the Transport for London website and when driving look out for signs saying you are entering the Congestion Charging and a large white ‘C’ painted on the road.
Failure to pay the congestion charge will result in Kendalls having to complete paperwork on your behalf, which therefore results in an admin fee to cover costs. Minimum charge is £15.00
You are covered for the cost of repairing or replacing the vehicle (or parts of it) if it gets damaged or stolen, however, please be aware you will have to pay a fixed amount towards the replacement cost. This is known as the insurance excess or deposit.
