Our minimum rental period is 4 days. To book rentals for longer than 30 days please contact us.
We recommend booking your rental to start at least a day before you are planning to wear your look. Deliveries can be made morning or afternoon, and we believe getting dressed up should be stress free! The rental end date is the day it needs to be dropped off or collected by our courier.

No need! We take care of all cleaning with our sustainable partners Oxwash.
If a spill happens, don’t try and fix it yourself - leave it to the professionals! Relax and remember that our optional Damage Protection covers all minor damage.
Most of our members take great care in renting items and the damage rate is extremely low. However, we understand that every now and again some wear and tear may be inevitable. That is why we have introduced optional Damage Protection when renting items on Rites to provide you peace of mind when renting.
If you choose to purchase Damage Protection when renting an item we will cover any minor damage (minor stains and repairs that are able to be fixed to the point of being unnoticeable) to a maximum cost of £50 per rented item.
What’s not covered?
Damage that can’t be repaired, including stains.
Loss of item due to carelessness, theft or other
Damage in excess of £50 repair fee
In the event of irreparable damage or loss of the item, the borrower would be liable to cover the total estimated RRP of the item at the discretion of our team.
