In no event shall any pre-authorised payment serve to extend the Rental Period of the Vehicle indicated under Part 3 of this Agreement. Should the Hirer wish to retain the Vehicle for a period exceeding the Rental Period, he shall obtain prior written authorisation to that effect from the Operators and effect a further payment in advance accordingly.

Hirer hereby agrees and irrevocably accepts that the Operators may, at any time during or even after the Rental Period, withdraw and deduct funds from the Hirer’s credit/debit card without the requirement of any signature or other additional authorisation by the Hirer, in satisfaction of any financial liabilities deriving from this Agreement, including but not limited to any damages, charges, parking tickets, fines and/or other penalties relating to the Rental Period, plus costs.
