What are cookies?
Cookies are small bits of information that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit almost any website. Cookies do not recognise you personally and are not harmful to your computer or mobile device. They are used by websites you visit in order to improve your experience on the website.
As well as setting some cookies ourselves - "first party cookies", we also work with some partners to help give you access to even more great features on our site. These partners set "third party cookies" which enable their features to be provided on or through our website (such as advertising or videos). Third party cookies do not recognise you personally but can recognise your computer when it visits CarDelMar and other websites. This helps to ensure you get the best experience possible when visiting these sites.
Some cookies, called "session cookies", stay on your computer only while your website browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies, called "persistent cookies", remain on your computer or mobile device after your browser is closed. This enables websites to recognise your computer when you later re-open your browser to give you as smooth a browsing experience as possible.
What types of cookies do we use?
These cookies help you to move around our site and use all its essential features. Without these cookies, our website would not work properly and you would not be able to use features such as the shopping basket or the secure customer account pages.
Performance and analytics cookies
At CarDelMar, we want to make your experience on our website as smooth and as enjoyable as possible. Performance and analytics cookies help us understand how our website is being used and how we can improve your experience on it.
These cookies cannot identify you personally; rather they provide us with anonymous information to help us understand which parts of our website interest our visitors and if they experience any errors. We use these cookies to test different designs and features for our website and we also use them to help us monitor how our visitors reach our sites and how effective our advertising is.
We use functionality cookies to save your settings on our website such as your language preference and booking information you’ve previously used when booking a car with us. We also use functionality cookies to remember things such as the last car you searched for so you can easily find it the next time you visit.
Some functionality cookies are essential if you want to view videos and maps on our site. We also use "Flash cookies" for some of our animated content and to remember some of your preferences such as your volume settings.
The advertisements you see on this website are served by us or by our service providers. But we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and other technologies. These third parties include (1) other Expedia Group companies; (2) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites; and (3) advertising networks, which collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different websites on the Internet.
The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests. We do not permit these third parties to collect personal information that directly identifies you (such as email address) on our site, nor do we share with them any such information.
Like other companies operating online, this website participates in cookie-based exchanges where information is collected about your browsing behaviour through cookies and other technologies and segmented into different topics of interest (such as travel). These topics of interest are then shared with third parties, including advertisers and ad networks, so they can tailor advertisements to your apparent interests. We do not share personal information that directly identifies you (such as your email address) with these companies and we do not permit these companies to collect any such information about you on our site. Please click here to learn more about cookie-based exchanges, including how to access information about the topics of interest associated with cookies on your computer and how to decline participation in these programs.
How can you manage your cookies?

If you choose to disable cookies on your computer or mobile device however, your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be degraded or restricted. www.allaboutcookies.org provides good simple instructions on how to manage cookies on the different types of web browsers.
