Frequently Asked Questions
Terms and Conditions. Please note that when reserving a rental on our website you must check the box that says, I accept the terms and conditions. This means that you acknowledge that the rental rate quoted on our website is for only traveling within the State of Florida. If you intend to travel outside of Florida the rate may differ from what is quoted on our website. Please call us for a quote on out of state rates to avoid unauthorized use and mileage charges. We do offer out of state rates with unlimited mileage. NOTE: Our vehicles are equipped with GPS geoboundary locators to allow tracking and monitor border crossings.
Can I use my international driver's license? A valid drivers license issued in your state or country is acceptable as well as an International License. A Learners License is not valid for rental purposes.
Do I need insurance? If you have your own policy or other rental car coverages that is transferable to rental vehicles and wish to use it for protection of our rental then we do require proof of that coverage. Be advised that the valid and collectible liability insurance and personal injury protection insurance of any authorized rental or leasing driver is primary for the limits of liability and personal injury protection coverage required by Sections 324.021(7) and 627.736, Florida Statues. We do offer C/CDW Comprehensive/Collision Damage Waiver which (subject to conditions stated on our rental agreement) will waive your responsibility for Comprehensive Damage and Collision Damage to the rental vehicle. CDW is not insurance. We also offer Supplimental Liability Coverage (SLI) that can provide liability coverage for persons and property outside of our vehicle.

If you do not carry any auto insurance coverage or it does not transfer you may still be qualified to rent a vehicle without it but your deposit may be higher.
