Summary Information for Drivers:

  1. When a Driver chooses to rent a Vehicle through the Services, the Driver shall be carrying out the following steps:
  1. Search for a rental location (the “Rental Location”) either by entering your preferred town, city or postcode (alternatively Vehicles can be selected first by the ‘Cars’ page on the Site and then a Rental Location);
  2. Select a Rental Location either via the drop-down menu or by selecting a Dealer location on the map;
  3. Select your preferred vehicle brand for rental or select ‘Any Brands’;
  4. Select your preferred vehicle class for rental or select ‘Any Vehicle Class’;
  5. Select the dates required for the Vehicle, including the collection and return time rental (this must be 48 hours in advance of your selected Rental Period) of the Vehicle (the “Rental Period”) and then press ‘Search’;
  6. Select a Vehicle to rent from via your preferred rental location or if you have selected a Vehicle via the ‘Cars’ Page on the Site, select your preferred Rental Location and the Rental Period as described above;
  7. Once you have confirmed the Vehicle to be rented and the Rental Period, proceed to the next step in the booking process;
  8. Enter your personal details as required by the Site to create your Karzoom Account, alternatively log in with your email and password if you have previously created a Karzoom Account;
  9. Select any added options the Dealer may supply such as collection and drop off services or adding any Additional Drivers so that they are authorised to drive the Vehicle. Please note that certain options are at the Dealer’s discretion and may incur additional charges where applicable;
  10. You will confirm your consent to Karzoom carrying out checks including driver licence checks and fraud prevention checks using your personal data as requested and provided by you during the website booking process. Where you wish to include additional drivers in the hire, you confirm you will obtain the prior consent of such additional drivers to allow Karzoom to carry out such checks using their data as provided by you;
  11. If you have selected a customised drop off and collection service (where available), you must provide the required address (“Collection Address”).  This address must be within the stated mileage of the Rental Location selected;
  12. You will then confirm your acceptance of the Terms and the Privacy Policy as well as the booking information you have submitted and then finally make the required payment via the Site using one of the approved Credit Cards.  Your booking is not accepted until such time as the Terms and the Privacy Policy have been accepted, the required payment has been made and each Driver has been validated by Karzoom.  The Security Deposit will be reserved against your Credit Card automatically before the commencement of the Rental Period;
  13. We will ask for your permission to communicate with you on other matters such as Karzoom offers, Karzoom news and other relevant updates – your permission is at your discretion.

The Rental Process:

  1. During the rental process, the following steps are to be followed:
  1. On the day of the commencement of the Rental Period, the Karzoom Account holder/Driver should arrive at the stated Dealer location (or agreed Collection Address) at the agreed time (start of the Rental Period).
  2. The Driver(s) must present the following to the Dealer prior to collecting the Vehicle:
  • A valid UK Driving Licence in the name of the Driver(s)
  • Confirmation email with booking reference for the Vehicle rental
  • The Credit Card used for the payment of the Vehicle rental which must be in the name of the Karzoom Account holder/Driver
  1. Both the Dealer and Driver will conduct a “Walk Around” of the Vehicle to record any existing damage or conditions to the Vehicle on the Karzoom Application (via an “App” used by the Dealer) to the extent this has not already been documented. The Driver and Dealer will confirm that they are both satisfied with the condition of the Vehicle and any listed damages and photographs taken and stored on the Karzoom Application. The Driver who has made the booking will then sign the Rental Agreement in the Application with an electronic signature.  By signing, the Driver and any Additional Drivers you again reconfirming that you agree to accept the Terms and the Privacy Policy. You are also agreeing that you will also be responsible for all costs, fees and charges arising – whether they’re down to you or your Additional Drivers.
  2. The Rental Agreement will then be emailed to the Driver’s email address that is associated with their Karzoom Account.  Karzoom and the Dealer will also be notified by email.
  3. The Driver is required to return the Vehicle in the same condition as when the Driver took receipt of it, and with the agreed level of fuel in the Vehicle (note – the Driver should return the Vehicle with no less fuel than when the Vehicle was collected to avoid any fuel costs being charged in accordance with the Terms).
  4. At the conclusion of the Rental Period, the Driver will return the Vehicle to the agreed location at the specified time. Both parties will conduct another “Walk Around” and inspect the condition of the Vehicle, checking off the condition of the Vehicle, recording the return mileage and the return fuel level. Photographs of the Vehicle will be taken so as to record the condition of the Vehicle on return. In the event the Vehicle has incurred damage, or been returned without sufficient fuel, or the mileage is over the agreed limit for the Rental Period, the Dealer will record this information via the Application and additional fees and charges will be applied against the Driver.
  5. In the event the Driver is dis-satisfied with the outcome of the Rental, they may open a complaint by contacting Karzoom via the Contact Us page at www.karzoom.co.uk.
  6. If the Driver wishes to extend the Rental Period, the Driver must request an extension either via the Site (using their login details) or by contacting the Dealer as soon as possible to confirm whether an extension is possible and the applicable charges. Those charges must be paid with the same Credit Card as the original booking before the extension of the Rental Period is confirmed.  Failure to extend the Rental Period without the prior authorisation of the Dealer and the associated payment of the related charges will, subject to Clause 13, make the Driver subject to late return charges as detailed in these Terms.
  7. If an Additional Driver is added to the reservation at a later stage (via a booking amendment), they may not drive the vehicle until they have been validated and authorised by Karzoom, which takes a maximum of 48 hours to complete.
  8. Where we find that the Driver has become liable for any costs, fees or charges under these Terms or for a failure to comply with these Terms, we reserve the right to charge the Credit Card used by the Driver for those costs, fees or charges along with any associated administration charges.
  9. We may ask the Drivers to provide feedback and a review of the applicable Dealer / Vehicle and provide a score rating on their experience.  By accepting these Terms, you explicitly confirm your agreement for Karzoom to contact you for that feedback.
  10. We will do our best to contact you if we find any personal belongings in the vehicle (“Lost Property”).  Any items containing personal or financial information will be disposed of within 28 days in accordance with our Privacy Policy, as will all other items.
