Car Hire & Transfers

Car Hire

Car hire is available in Jersey and Guernsey with Europcar and with Athol in the Isle of Man. We are able to offer a wide selection of vehicles from a small 3 door car up to a 7 seater people carrier. There are more limited numbers of larger vehicles and automatic vehicles, so you are advised to book early if you require these.

Minimum age requirements: In the Channel Islands drivers must be 21 years of age for the compact cars and 25 years for all other types. In the Isle of Man drivers must be 23 years of age. In all destinations you must have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 12 months.

Maximum age restrictions: In the Channel Islands it is 89 years. However, insurance supplements will be charged locally for drivers aged 80–89 years. Rates can be provided upon request. In the Isle of Man the maximum age is 75.

Fuel and insurance: It is important to note that car rental prices do not include fuel which is payable locally. Car hire prices do include Collision Damage Insurance which offers cover for accidents and damage, but an excess will be payable for any claim. The excess for the Channel Islands is £1,000 for all car types and £800 for the Isle of Man. If you wish to waiver any excess to zero you may opt to take an excess waiver insurance, which is payable locally. VED (vehicle emission duty) is payable locally in Jersey at a cost between 50p-£2.50 per day depending on the emissions of the vehicle.

Extras: Optional extras, such as booster seats, baby car seats and extra drivers are also payable locally per day. Please note that these may vary depending on the car type and the rental company.

Resort Transfers
Resort transfers are not included in our holidays. Pre-bookable return transfers are available in Jersey for £13 and Guernsey for £15 per adult (shared coach transfer). Private taxi transfers are also available. Please ask for prices. Children receive 50% reduction.

Please note in Jersey and Guernsey there is limited availability of taxis at airports and ports. Should you choose not to pre-book your transfers we cannot guarantee that a taxi will always be available upon arrival. 

Transfers are not available to pre-book on the other islands. However, taxis are readily available in Alderney and the Isle of Man (payable locally).

In Sark, Herm and the Isles of Scilly you can walk from the harbour to your hotel.
