GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PEPECAR.COM

    1. DESCRIPTION OF THE TYPE OF SERVICE AND RENTAL TERMS.   Through the website of PEPECAR.COM, whose details are shown at the end of these General Terms and Conditions, customers have access to information on products and services provided by different companies offering vehicle rentals without drivers or rent-a-car operators (hereinafter, “the Operators”), from where they may reserve and purchase some of their products.   Unless indicated to the contrary, any offer in relation to the products and services provided by the Operators offered by PEPECAR.COM will be undertaken as an intermediary in the sale. This means that PEPECAR.COM only puts the Operator in contact with the potential customers. As a result, PEPECAR.COM is an intermediary whose involvement is limited to arranging contracts between the customer on the one hand and the Operator on the other, without promising the rendering of any services and without providing them, and without being bound by the result.   The undertaking by the customer of reservations or purchases of products or services from the Operators the customer chooses shall be subject to the specific terms and conditions established in each particular case by the Operator. The customer agrees to accept and respect the terms and conditions of sale defined by any Operator the customer chooses to contract, including but not limited to the payment of any accrued amounts and complying with any rules and regulations regarding the availability of prices, products or services. In the event of any special rules or regulations existing that may affect the prices, products or services selected by the customer, these rules and regulations shall be shown to the customer before proceeding with the reservation.   The production and updating of information on offers, products or services, prices, characteristics and any other relevant details or information regarding the products and services offered through the website correspond to the respective Operators. PEPECAR.COM will take steps to ensure that this information is supervised, verified and updated.   The different Operators who are responsible for the information contained on our website reserve the right to modify the information in relation to their products and offers.   The offers, terms and conditions of PEPECAR.COM and of the Operators may be modified at any time without prior notice. These modifications will not affect the offers, terms and conditions accepted by the customer at the time of contracting the same. The customer must check the terms and conditions of PEPECAR.COM before contracting any service or product in order to verify any changes that have been made.   If the customer does not accept these terms and conditions, they must not use this website. Use of this website shall be deemed as acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions.   We recommend that customers print a copy of these General Terms and Conditions so that they can be consulted at any subsequent time.   The Operators, within the scope of their respective obligations, shall be liable for compliance with the obligations arising from currently applicable legislation and from the terms and conditions of sale for each of the products and services contracted.   Due to the fact that the customer signs the contract with the Operator, any query or complaint in regard to the service must be addressed to the Operator. Notwithstanding this, PEPECAR.COM provides its Customer Service department to help with any doubts or suggestions they may have.   In order to provide customers access to the comparison of the services requested, the customer expressly authorises PEPECAR.COM to undertake certain procedures with the Operator in order to make this comparison of services possible.   2. GENERAL RENTAL TERMS BETWEEN PEPECAR.COM AND THE CUSTOMER.   The customer declares that they meet the necessary requirements and have the necessary legal capacity to contract the services offered by the Operators on the website of PEPECAR.COM, in accordance with the conditions detailed below, which they declare that they understand and accept. PEPECAR.COM is not responsible for the accuracy and precision of the details provided by the user, and therefore cannot verify the necessary age and legal capacity to contract these services.   Furthermore, some Operators require that customers are of a minimum age and have held a driving licence for a minimum period of time in order to rent certain vehicles. The customer will be informed of these requirements prior to completing the purchase under the terms and conditions of the Operator for the service, and agrees to only contract the services offered for which they meet the necessary requirements in terms of their age and the period for which they have held a driving licence required by the Operator.   The customer agrees to use the services and contents contained on our website in accordance with the law, as well as in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions for the services offered by PEPECAR.COM at any given time, and shall desist from using them in order to:

Customers may accept or reject the services and products offered without this affecting your initial selection in any way.   Any reservation process that is begun will be converted into a purchase at the end of the procedure described below, creating a location number (Voucher) which will be sent to the customer’s e-mail.   If the customer purchases directly through the website of PEPECAR.COM, after selecting the location where the vehicle is to be collected and entering the required date, the customer will then select from amongst the available offers, adjusting their preferences, possibly in several steps, with information such as the type of vehicle in which they are interested.
