    Cancellation Policy

    The following cancellation fees are applied. Amount is dependent on when the vehicle is due to be delivered and how much prior notice was received of the cancellation.

    Cancellation Charges:

    The following cancellation charges apply for pick-up in France & any other European country:
    Cancellation of more than 21 days before pick up - no penalty
    Cancellation of less than 21 days before pick up - €1000*
    No Show - €1000

    * If a cancellation is received in less than 21 days before delivery, you will be sent a confirmation within two business working days. The penalty applied is due to recent French law, which states that a vehicle registration for short-term leasing cannot be made invalid. In this case, the vehicle can no longer be considered brand new and thus a €1000 penalty is charged.

    Cancellation during vehicle delivery:

    It is mandatory that when the vehicle is delivered and you wish to cancel, you do not take delivery of the car. Cancellation reasons can include, being unhappy with the vehicle, etc.

    If after having viewed the car, you wish to change it for another vehicle or model, you will incur the following fees based on first car's registration, plus other expenses. However, for this to happen, you must not accept delivery of the first car.
