RENTAL POLICY

 

REQUIREMENTS AND AGE LIMITS

Vehicles are available for drivers over 25 years old. Other drivers aged from 21 to 25 years old can be added with an additional payment. Unfortunately, we do not rent any cars for drivers under 21 years old.

All clients must be physically present during the preparation process of the documents and the car rental. Unfortunately, we do not allow the participation of the third party for car pick up. Our staff would have to personally provide our clients with their car keys.

INTERNATIONAL RENTERS

Cars are available to foreign citizens with a valid passport and driver’s license of their country. We can arrange insurance documents for foreign visitors who are planning on renting for more than two days. Please note that foreign visitors who do not have the insurance documents, would have to make a higher security deposit of $ 1,000 – $ 25,000, depending on the vehicle.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

Every lessee must leave a security deposit in a written form of a deposit cheque, cash or credit card. In case of any damages when returning the vehicle to the company an extra charge will apply from the security deposit. The amount of the deposit is going to vary depending on the value of the rented vehicle and its type of insurance documents. The approximate price is $ 1,000 – $ 25,000.

This deposit is fully refundable upon completion of the lease. If you are using an American Express for your deposit, then it must be passed through the status of an “AUTHORIZATION ONLY” (not the actual payment). If you are using Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card, the deposit is deducted from the card, and you will be issued a full refund at the lease termination.

WEATHER

We cannot provide you with the refund or change of the date of the lease during the unexpected weather conditions. However, we are flexible in case of the unpredictable weather conditions or natural disasters such as hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes or other extreme conditions that make driving unsafe. Our policy on these exceptions during these cases primarily refers to the time of receipt / return of the car, and not for the entire period of the lease.

INSURANCE

All renters must take a full responsibility for any damages in case of a car accident.

You have the following options:

If you own an American Express card – you will be offered their program called “PREMIUM CAR RENTAL PROTECTION”.

It is available directly from an American Express services and provides a full coverage for any rental vehicles. This is a great option because it can be purchased in addition to the basic insurance policy and it will provide you with an additional level of protection.

There are several companies that offer programs for the case of an accident. Contact us for more information.

CANCELLATION POLICY

When you book your car, we will check your credit card for the full amount of your rental, however, you will not be charged until you will be provided with your vehicle.

Since we have a limited number of rental cars, we are on a very tight schedule. We offer a 24-hour time period after booking to make any changes or cancellations (if rent is not less than 7 days), followed by the cancellation fee of 50 percent of the total rent or $ 500.

If you cancel or transfer at least 7 days prior the lease you will be charged with the full cost of the cancellation.
