14.2.2 The variable fee includes costs for distance driven within the limitations set out on the Website.

If we are still unable to charge the User’s Payment Card, the first monthly part of the reservation will be cancelled.
14.2.5 Additional fees (such as fees in case of late return, smoking in the Vehicle, parking fines, fuel and taxes etc. and other additional fees set out in the Price List) and compensation for damage will be charged to the User’s Payment Card in arrears. The Company is entitled to such compensation if the claim is made within six months from the end of the reservation.
14.2.6 Once a reservation has been accepted by us, the User cannot cancel the reservation and will be charged in full for the entire reservation made by the User.
14.2.7 The User shall be charged the full fee for the Rental Period even if the reservation is ended prior to the end of the Reservation Period.

The payment terms of such invoice shall be 15 days net. In case of paper invoicing, we may charge the User an invoice fee. In case of non-payment by a User domiciled outside of Denmark, the company reserves the right to invoice the User in any way deemed appropriate and charge the User any related costs.
14.2.9 If the User does not pay the invoice or any other compensation to us by the payment due date, the User will be charged a reminder fee and late payment interest according to the Danish Interest Act (Renteloven). If the User does not pay following such late payment reminder, we reserve the right to undertake debt collection measures and the User may be charged for any related costs.
14.2.10 If the User registered for the Service and enjoys a discount based on a particular Account, affiliation, residence, employment or similar and the basis for this discount ceases, the User shall notify us without delay.
