A card is left through the door advising where and when you can collect it.
Is it easy to use?
Yes. As well as the quick start guide we send you the Zintech team are always happy to help with any technical issues. We would also be happy to pre-program your unit with any destinations you wish to drive to.
Is the sat nav insured?
Usually it will be covered through your holiday, household, motor policy or car hire insurance but please check with them first.
When and how do I send it back?
You need to post it back from a UK Post Office in the provided packaging on the first working day after your rental finishes.
Are the maps up to date?
We always offer the very latest maps available from TomTom. This detailed map seamlessly covers the USA and Canada. The countries fully covered are the US (all states including Hawaii and Alaska) and Canada (all provinces) and Puerto Rico. Many of our customers visit Orlando, Florida and all the main attractions are listed under points of interest.
What if I need to extend my hire period?
Please notify us before your rental is due to end and usually we will be able to accommodate your request.
Please note that all hire products can only be delivered within the United Kingdom and bookings must be placed before 16.00 for next day delivery
Your Sat Nav (GPS) will be delivered by 1pm the working day before your rental start date via Royal Mail Special Delivery. Delivery is available to home, office or any other address as long as the unit can be signed for. If an earlier delivery time is required then please contact us for a quotation. Local customers are welcome to pick the TomTom up from our offices in Bournemouth to avoid delivery charges.
The USA is probably our most popular overseas destination for our customers all year round. Florida is also the most common place where people drive in particular Orlando and all the theme parks. This is made easy as most of the attractions are loaded onto the device as Points Of Interest (POI).
