CAR RENTAL PROCEDURE

Fill out the form on the front page, send us an e-mail to unicar.fo@gmail.com or call us on phone +298 544 000 in order to get a rental car offer. If you wish to accept our offer, we will reserve the car for you, send you an e-mail with the booking details, and an invoice for the deposit of 1500kr. When we have received the payment of the deposit, we will send you an e-mail in which we confirm the rental. About 10 days before the rental we will send you the invoice for the rental amount.

DEPOSIT

A deposit of 1500kr is required in order to get a confirmation of the booking. The deposit is paid in addition to the rental amount and not as a part of it. The deposit will be refunded to you after the rental. This gives us the possibility to subtract the fee for any additional sub-sea tunnels trips, a car returned without a full tank, parking tickets and the likes, should it be nessecary.

The deposit will be refunded with PayPal to the same credit card used to make the payment for the rental. If the rental was paid by bank transfer, remember to send us en e-mail with your bank account details, so that we can transfer the deposit back to you.

SELF-RISK

The self-risk costs are 9990kr at the most, for one damage. How much is to be paid in self-risk depends on how severe the damage to the rental car is. If the hiring person is not responsible a written confirmation from the counter part must be submitted. All material damages must be reported to the police.

SELF-RISK INSURANCE

Selfrisk-insurance can be included in the rental for 100kr/day. In case of theft or damage to the car the amount to be paid is maximum 1500kr.

The self-risk insurance does not cover:

  • Damages to the car when the driver has been under the influence of alcohol or because of some other reasons is not able to drive the car in a safe manner.
  • Holes burned on seats and mats.
  • Broken equipment in the car
  • Damages to the bottom of the car, when driving on a bad road.
  • The cost for towing the car, if the car has gone off the road.
  • Damages to the clutch caused by not being able to properly drive a car with manual transmission

SUB-SEA TUNNEL

There are two sub-sea tunnels in the Faroe Islands. One which connects Vágar (the island where the airport is) to Streymoy (the islands where the capital Tórshavn is) and one which connects the island Eysturoy to Borđoy (where the town Klaksvík is). The sub-sea tunnels have an automatic system, that registers the car’s license plate number and then sends the bill afterwards. We charge 80kr for a trip back and forth through the sub-sea tunnel. We will subtract the fee for driving through the subsea tunnels from the deposit.

RETURN THE CAR IN THE FOLLOWING MANNER

  • With all equipment in the car in the same condition as it was when picking up the car, this includes documents, tools, extra equipment etc. If something is missing or destroyed during the rental, we will charge it off the deposit.
  • With a full tank. If the rental car isn’t delivered with a full tank, we will charge the fee for fuel + 200kr for filling it from the deposit.
  • Fairly clean, meaning that waste, food etc. shall not be left in the car. The car shall not be covered in dirt. If the car is delivered extremely dirty, we will charge a fee from the deposit for taking extra time cleaning the car.
  • On time. If the car is not delivered at the time agreed, you may have to pay for this, if you do not call us beforehand to let us know that you will be delayed. You are welcome to call us to ask if it is possible for you to have the car longer than stated in the agreement.

CANCELLATION

The deadline for cancellation in order to get a full refund is 10 days before the rental start date. If you cancel after the deadline, we will charge you 800kr., except when the cancellation is due to incidents like volcano ash, and other incidents called "Acts of God”.

We do not charge anything for changes of car, or rental period, but we have no guarentee that we do have cars available.
