Vehicles are GPS equipped, and fines may be incurred if vehicle is taken to prohibited area(s).

What do I need to bring?

In order to sign out your reserved vehicle, you will need a VALID DRIVER LICENSE, CASH, MAJOR CREDIT CARD, and PROOF OF CURRENT INSURANCE. A valid credit card must be presented and placed on file at the time of rental in order to depart with vehicle. You will be asked to sign a Rental Record where you will inspect the vehicle and a Terms of Agreement form which serves as a waiver of liability, standard to the industry. This generally takes about 15 minutes.
