Rental Day Description

One rental day is defined as a 24 hour period starting from the time that the vehicle is picked up.

Renters who do not return their rental vehicle within a 2 hours of the agreed upon time will incur additional charges.


Daily mileage allotment changes according to the duration of the rental period.

1-6 Days Rental Period: 300 miles per day.

7-10 Days Rental Period: 200 miles per day.

11-14 Days Rental Period: 150 miles per day.

Every renter will have to provide proof of personal auto insurance with full coverage that extends to rental cars. If renters do not have full coverage extending to rental cars they will have to purchase supplemental collision coverage. If a domestic customer (US-Canada) does not have any auto insurance, they will have to purchase an actual auto insurance policy, and we’ll help set that up.

In some instances major Credit Cards provide collision coverage to rental cars. Upon request CC companies will send out a ‘proof of insurance’ email to us, and that is acceptable collision coverage.

International customers (outside US-Canada) will have to purchase an actual, short term auto insurance policy for driving in the USA. Contact us for specific details and we will set that up for you.

Pet Policy

Please do not try to bring animals, this is a massive inconvenience especially when vehicles have to go back out quickly.

Supplemental Insurance Coverages and Charges

Supplemental Collision Damage Coverage
27.00 per day

All renters must have full coverage from their personal auto insurance that extends to rental car cars. If they do not have full coverage they’ll have to purchase supplemental collision coverage. Renter’s Collision Protection is supplemental collision coverage available for renters. Covers the rental vehicle up to $20,000 in damages after a $250 deductible. (Deductible = Renter is responsible for the first $250 in damages) Cost is $27/day. (Please note: This is NOT a damage waiver but is an actual collision damage insurance policy)

Windshield Damage Waiver (WDW)
$20.00 per day

The Windshield Damage Waiver (WDW) covers rock chips or cracks or broken windshields that may occur while driving, especially Jeep driving. If you purchase the WDW for $20/day you will not be responsible to pay for damage to the windshield during your rental period.

Supplemental Liability Coverage
$20.00 per day

This coverage extends already existing liability coverage to $300,000 limit. Beneficial for renters with low liability coverage (example: $100,000 coverage is not very high when medical expenses become involved) who want better protection. If a customer is completely without auto insurance they’ll have to purchase an actual insurance policy.

Personal Accident Insurance
$10.00 per day

PAI covers things normally not handled by regular insurance when it comes to accidents. For example, if someone is injured or killed on a ski trip, the estate would be paid by the personal accident insurance.

Car Pac
$10.00 per day

Car Pac is for last minute emergencies and covers renter expenses. For example, if a key is lost and a new key fob needs to be ordered (ranging in cost from $250 – $400) the customer would be reimbursed from CarPac.

All drivers must be specified on the Rental Agreement and a copy of all driver licenses will be requested at the time of vehicle pickup.
