The security deposit is set freely by the owner. The law does not set any minimal amount nor any statutory percentage, and the rates on the website vary. The amount is specified at the bottom of each advert.
If your rental contract states that the deposit is managed by the owner, then please bring this amount with you on the day of departure in the form requested by the owner.
This deposit will allow the owner to cover any damage inside the vehicle caused by the renter during the hire: broken kitchenware, vehicle not cleaned, fuel/oil not refilled, ... etc.
If no damage is noted on the inventory of fixtures on the return of the vehicle, the guarantee deposit will be returned on the day the vehicle is returned.
If damage is noted on the inventory, the owner or the insurance company will provide us with a repair price quote. After thorough review and investigation, the appropriate party liable for the damages will be charged.
If the deposit is said to be managed by Yescapa on your rental agreement, then a bank imprint will be kept in the event of damage, and the renter authorises Yescapa to take the repairs amount directly from their credit card. Please note that an amicable settlement will prevent the £49 administration fee to be paid by the culpable party.
