  Weekend Rentals  
     
  All vehicles checked-out on Saturdays require a minimum 2-day rental. You may drop it off Sunday if it is more convenient but  
  you will be charged for 2 days until the vehicle is checked-in on Monday morning. There is absolutely no one-day weekends  
  permitted since we are closed on Sundays and there is no one to check-in the vehicle or rent it back out on Sundays.  
     
  All vehicles checked-out on Fridays require a minimum 3-day rental. If you are only looking for a 1-day rental on Fridays, the  
  vehicle must be returned by 9:00 AM on Saturdays regardless of what time you rented the vehicle on Friday. If you rented the  
  vehicle at 12:00 PM on Friday, you must return it by 9:00 AM on Saturday for it to count as a 1-day rental. Otherwise, you will  
  automatically be charged an extra 2-day weekend rental.  
     
  Please call us with any questions and we would be glad to assist you.  
     
     
  Insurance  
     
  Renters who have current auto insurance must check their policy to verify if coverage extends to our rental vehicles. If you

  verify its terms and conditions of coverage. When submitting a claim to your credit card company, it is your responsiblity to  
  submit all necessary paperwork and verify that payment is made in a timely manner.  
     
  The above coverage does not include damage to the undercarriage & tires of the vehicle. The renter will be required to pay the  
  full amount for any damage caused to the mentioned parts. When picking up the car please be sure to inspect it thoroughly for  
  all and any existing damages.
