Where the booking was secured using a credit/charge card, you the customer here agree that the amount will be charged to that card for the damages as they have arisen. In the event that a credit/charge card was not used for securing the booking, we will invoice you directly should the additional payment be not made on the spot.
Overtime charges begin immediately after the end of the grace period. Under this agreement, the overtime rate per hour or part thereof is $150.00. Payment of all overtime charges must be settled before the end of the hire. We do not accept cheques, debit cards, credit cards, or foreign currency as payment on the day of the hire. In the event that payment of overtime charges cannot be made on the day of the hire, the customer agrees that the amounts) will be charged to the credit/debit card with which the booking deposit was paid. Credit card payments) are subject to a 5% (five percent) surcharge on the transaction amount.
