Terms and Conditions for car rental
The customer rents a vehicle from 62°N Car Rental subject to all such terms and conditions stated on the front page and on this page. By signing the rental agreement, the renter accepts the terms and conditions as the essence of the rental agreement. Please read the terms and conditions carefully before departure.
The vehicle may only be driven by the renter and additional drivers who are noted in the rental agreement. Otherwise all protection will be lost.
The renter/driver must be at least 21 years old and must have had the driver license for a minimum of two years.
When handed the car keys to the rental car, 62°N will impound a deposit authorization of DKK 2.000 on the renter’s credit card, in addition to the daily rental fee. If renter chooses to upgrade their insurance to the superior SCDW+TP insurance class (see additional information under ‘Insurance’ below) this deposit authorization is reduced to DKK 1.500.
The deposit authorization will be released after the end of the rental period unless there are additional fees such as tunnel fees, fees related to lack of fuel in vehicle upon return, damages, parking fines and other possible extra fees. These will be charged from the deposit authorization.
The final payment will be settled to one week after the car has been returned to 62°N.
1 Delivery and Return
The vehicle must be delivered to the renter in good overall condition and without any visible defects or shortcomings. Any complaints as to the condition of the vehicle must be made to 62°N immediately at time of pickup. The renter is responsible for returning the vehicle with all documents and accessories and in the same condition as on the date stipulated in the Agreement. 62°N reserves the right to repossess the vehicle at any time without demand - and at the renter’s expense - if the vehicle is used in any manner contrary to this Agreement.
If the vehicle is returned outside our regular opening hours, you are responsible for the vehicle until it has been inspected by our staff. You can always call our emergency telephone +298 73 35 10 to get the car inspected.
