The bullet points listed below are a recap of some of the main points of common car rental agreements, and are supplied for informational purposes. Your car rental agreement will be with a major car rental company, and CarzRental is acting as a broker for these car rental companies. Each car rental company stipulates in its rental agreement its own conditions, therefore it is important to read your specific rental agreement carefully before signing it. 1. Car Rental Agreement: The car rental agreement comprises a set of rules, information, rights and obligations between the car rental company and the lessee in regards to the services hired. The agreement shall be presented by the car rental company to the lessee at the time of pick-up. It is the lessee’s responsibility to read the specific terms and conditions carefully. Some rental companies may provide the agreement in the lessee’s native language. It is the lessee’s responsibility to inquire about its availability before signing it. 2. Responsibility for change: CarzRental shall not be held responsible for any changes and/or requirements set out by the rental companies without prior notice. Any questions regarding these procedures and requirements shall be addressed beforehand, since they could affect the execution of the rental agreement. 3. Booking Confirmation Document (Voucher): Please read your voucher carefully immediately upon receipt to ensure all details, include dates of rental, pick up and return locations, drivers, insurance, vehicle category and additionals are accurate. The voucher serves as proof of reservation of the vehicle. Most rental companies demand you print the voucher and present it at the rental office. The voucher shall only be accepted if the personal data (lessee’s name, confirmation number, dates, etc.) match the booking information at the rental office. Failure to present the voucher (Booking Confirmation Document) at the rental office may prevent the lessee from making use of the amount prepaid online, as well as the right to take advantage of rates booked in advance. 4. Driver’s Minimum Age: The driver’s minimum age is 25 years old. Individuals between the ages of 21 and 24 with a driver’s license are subject to additional fees charged by the rental company. Also, there may be specific age limits for certain countries or vehicle categories. For more information, contact one of our experts. 5. Driver’s License: The special rental rates offered by CarzRental are available to holders of non US drivers licenses renting a car in the US. Lessees are required to present the original copy of their national non US driving license at the car rental office. The license must be valid throughout and until the end the rental period. Lessees shall only rent vehicles in the category allowed by their non US license. In some cases, an international driver’s license may also be required together with the license issued by the driver’s country of origin. 6. Passport for identification purposes: In order to execute the agreement, the lessee shall also present at the rental office a valid passport issued by the same country as the driver’s license. 7. Credit Card for Security Deposit: The lessee shall present at the rental office a valid international credit card, in the name of the lessee and with an available credit limit enough to cover the security deposit. Third-party credit cards, prepaid credit cards. credit cards not authorized for international transactions, debit cards and/ or cash will not be accepted by the rental company. The credit card shall be accepted under the rental company’s discretion at the time of the execution of the agreement. The security deposit varies depending on the vehicle category and rental period, and it may be withheld by the rental company in case of damages on the rental vehicle or to pay for optional services hired directly at the rental office. Car rental companies reserve the right to request more than one credit card with available credit to allow for the rental of certain (usually non standard) vehicle categories. These restrictions apply at some locations, therefore we suggest contacting the company for further information. 8. Currency: The amount on the booking prepaid at your country of origin is, generally, expressed in local currency based on the exchange rate on the day of the purchase, since the rate’s original currency is in US Dollars (USD). 9. Payment of Fees and Additional Optional Services: Any additional services, products and accessories booked by the lessee with the car rental company on the day the agreement is executed or during the rental period, are the lessee’s responsibility and their payment shall be made directly at the rental office. Once the agreement is signed and the rental period begins, the optional services booked shall not be cancelled or reimbursed. 10. No Smoking: It is strictly forbidden to smoke inside the rental vehicle. In the event of smoking inside the rental vehicle, a fine may be imposed, which amount varies depending on the car rental company, and it shall only be confirmed at destination. 11. Return of Vehicle: Failure to return the vehicle on the date indicated on the Booking Confirmation Document (Voucher), constitutes a misappropriation offense and shall result in the search and seizure of the vehicle, as well as in other civil and criminal penalties. 12. Vehicle Pick-Up Policy: The car rental company shall guarantee the vehicle reservation until whichever occurs first: 29 minutes after the stipulated pick-up time or until the car rental office’s closing time. After this period, the reservation will be cancelled (No-Show). In the event of delays of any nature, including flight delays, rescheduling or overbooking, contact the car rental pick-up location immediately on the phone number printed on the voucher. If you have difficulty contacting the office, please contact us and we will attempt to update the pick-up time. 13. Vehicle Drop-Off Policy: The lessee shall return the vehicle to the rental office on the date, time and location indicated in the rental agreement. After said time, the car rental company reserves the right to make adjustment on the booking price adding penalties and/or fees as established at the time of pick-up. In case you plan to board a flight or boat after returning the vehicle we recommend that you arrive at the car rental drop-off location at least four hours before your boarding time to ensure you have sufficient time to conclude the agreement and continue to the airport/ sea port. 14. One-Way Fee (pick-up location is different from the drop-off location): Car rental company may charge a One Way Fee when pick-up location is different from the drop-off location. You must check in advance which pick up locations allow this option. The fee shall be paid directly to the rental company. When the vehicle drop-off location is different from the one indicated in the rental agreement, in addition to the one-way fee, the rental company might add an additional charge by way of ‘breach of contract’, in which case the rental company may or may not accept the return of the vehicle at a different location without prior negotiation. 15. Rental Extensions: If the lessee needs to extend the rental agreement, he/she should contact the rental office to request for authorization and, therefore, update the rental price. 16. Car Rental Office Opening Hours: The office’s opening hours are subject to change without prior notice. In case of picking up or dropping off the vehicle on a date, at a time or at a location other than the one indicated in the agreement, it will be the lessee’s responsibility to check availability with the car rental office or with CarzRental. 17. Delivery and Shuttle Service: In order to make use of the delivery or shuttle service (where relevant), lessee shall provide the flight information in advance. These services will only be available for car rental offices located outside the airport premises. Failure to provide this information shall result in the cancellation of the reservation without prior notice. 18. Optional Services and Accessories: The lessee may request optional items directly at the rental office based on the lessee’s needs at the time the vehicle is picked up. Additional drivers are subject to the same rules as the main driver and must be present at the time the agreement is executed. 19. Vehicle group: Vehicles are booked and guaranteed by group of vehicles, not by make, year, model, color, license plate or configuration. Vehicle models may suffer variations without prior notice during the car rental company’s fleet renewal. Luggage capacity is for information purposes only and may be smaller depending on the number of passengers as well as the number and size of the suitcases that need to be transported. If the number of passengers and/or suitcases surpasses the capacity of the vehicle rented, CarzRental shall not be held liable for the rejection of the reservation or any additional charges regarding the change of category. It is common practice to offer an upgrade for an additional cost at the time of pickup. If the upgrade is accepted by the lessee, the prepaid amount will be taken as partial payment and the difference shall be charged directly on the lessee’s credit card. 20. Border Restrictions: Rental companies reserve the right to charge fees for crossing borders between states or countries with their vehicles, or restrict this activity altogether. It is the responsibility of the lessee to inform the company about his/her itinerary. 21.

Some examples of additional expenses include: traffic tickets, damages on the vehicle not covered by insurance, fuel, tolls, optional insurance coverage, and accessories and services hired directly at the rental office. Other additional charges may be applied by the rental company. 22. Traffic Tickets: The lessee shall be held solely responsible for the civil and criminal liability as well as the payment of any traffic tickets before the corresponding local authority. The car rental company may reserve the right to intervene or advance payments, which will then be charged to the lessee and, in which case, the rental company may also charge administrative fees. 23. Rate Update: The price on the booking corresponds to the information included in the voucher. This price may be modified when: a) changes in the itinerary, category, services and booking information occur; b) optional items or services are added or excluded; c) additional charges not included in the reservation or printed in the voucher are presented by the rental company; d) the fees to be paid at destination were altered by the car rental company. In case of disagreement with the recalculated amounts presented in the agreement, the lessee may challenge them directly with the rental company. The customer’s signature on the agreement will be deemed as an agreement between the parties, hence no additional charges may be imposed afterwards. 24. Early Return of Vehicle: There will be no refunds for unused rental days. 25. Vehicle Inspection: If possible, we recommend the lessee to pay close attention to the vehicle inspection at the time of pick-up. It is important to verify and point out the general conditions of cleanliness, hygiene, maintenance, damages and/or failures that may exist in the rental vehicle.
