The Fantastic Five Philosophies
Make your next Go With The Gecko vehicle hire the smoothest one yet, by following
our five fantastic philosophies for a more comfortable and enjoyable hire experience.
Take photos in our handy Book ‘N Go app during the vehicle unlock process to record the vehicle condition before your hire starts.
Don’t get dinged with additional refuelling charges, make that quick easy pitstop before returning the vehicle to your original hire location and top the vehicle up instead.
Be a tosser! Take your garbage with you and toss it in a nearby bin to keep your Go With The Gecko vehicle looking fresh and clean.
Call us if you need to extend your hire time, or otherwise another booking might be arranged to follow your booking forcing you to keep to your original schedule.
Leaving lights on can drain the battery and delay our hires. Take a second to ensure that everything is shut down before locking up.
Kilometre Travel Allowance
The daily kilometre travel allowance will be shown on your rental agreement and may be based on the type of vehicle and the location. You can increase the standard travel allowance at the time of booking. If you exceed the stated daily allowance, a charge may apply for excess distance covered.
Your liability for loss or damage to the vehicle is limited to the stated Insurance Excess unless the vehicle is used for a prohibited use. The standard insurance excess can be reduced by purchasing our Excess Reduction Insurance at the time of booking.
Breakdown Roadside Assistance
There is basic breakdown service included in your rental to cover call-outs for mechanical failure which is not deemed to be the fault of the hirer.
Charges apply for Roadside Assistance where the hirer is at fault such as, flat batteries due to leaving lights on or draining power from accessories etc, lost or keys locked in vehicle, punctured tyres, running out of fuel etc.
Full Roadside Assistance cover can be purchased in advance for an additional fee which covers your Roadside Assistance call-out subject to the policy terms.
