Correction to article: Please note this offer is not for extending your current rental as stated. The offer stands for rental of a new vehicle, to cover the period of disruption the Icelandic volcanic eruption has caused, when you have had to return the car you are currently using.
The ash cloud created by the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland is currently affecting flights across Northern Europe and Scandinavia. The cloud is set to clear the area later this evening, but until conditions are considered to be safe, airlines are advising all customers to check before arriving at airports to check the current situation before getting to the airport.
You can currently track the air traffic across Europe at http://www.flightradar24.com/.
