The great thing about renting from Kenings is that we are not overly strict in our rental requirements.
To rent a vehicle from Kenings, you need to have a valid driver’s licence and a credit card that is in the name of the person picking up the vehicle.
The only age requirement Kenings imposes is that the driver of the vehicle must be 23 or older.. If the driver is younger, there will be a Young Drivers surcharge. (Applies to International Drivers as well).
Kenings accepts all major credit cards including MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express & Visa; as long as the credit card is in the name of the renter. Please note: Kenings does not accept cash (unless prior arrangement is not made).
Rental charges are calculated in 24 hour period (24 hours = 1 Day).

1) Standard Cover: The customer is responsible for a limited liability amount (Excess) in case of damage or loss to a Kenings vehicle.
