1.11 Late Return Policy
The User is entitled to ask for a rental extension during the rental period. However, the approval of such extension is at the sole discretion of Outbound and penalty fees may occur.
In the event the vehicle would be returned more than 30 minutes after the date and time and at the location specified in the specific terms and conditions (unless an extension of the rental period was previously approved in writing or email by Us) the User will be charged for additional hours the vehicle has been used plus additional penalties if Outbound has suffered any damages related to that delay (for example if that vehicle was booked by another User on the next rental period).
If the vehicle has not been returned more than twenty-four (24) hours after the end of the rental period at the location specified in the specific terms and conditions, the vehicle will be reported as stolen to the police and the User will be prosecuted to the maximum extent permitted by law.
1.12 Recharging the Vehicle
The User may return the vehicle back at the end of the rental period at any charge level provided that charge level is above 10%.

If however you are not near the Designated Parking Space and elect to charge the vehicle at a public Recharge Station, you will be liable for any associated costs of that public charging facility.
Drivers must ensure that the recharging at any public charging facility only occurs at approved electric vehicle Recharge Stations in accordance with the Schedule of approved charging providers.
When using charging stations, the User must ensure to unplug and move the car once the charging cycle is complete. Failure to do so may result in penalty fees (at the standard rate of the charging provider) per additional minute of occupying the supercharger after the end of the recharge. This charge is levied by the charging provider and is outside the control of Outbound.
The specific terms and conditions will mention an indication of the theoretical range achievable with the vehicle. This mention is by no way a guarantee that this range will be effectively achievable without intermediate charging as many factors significantly influence that theoretical range such as driving style, weather conditions, use of heating or air conditioning, types of road, etc. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure he/she charges the vehicle before the battery is fully depleted.
Any additional costs resulting from battery breakdown due to User charging failure or negligence shall be charged back to the User.
