You pay 50% of the total rental fee at the time of booking. You pay the remainder 14 days before the rental period, or, if booking with less than 14 days to go, at the time of booking.
Taxes and Fees
Rentals are subject to county and rental car taxes which vary by location. All reservations include a prep fee, which typically consists of a cleaning fee and driver verification. Renters outside of the United States may be subject to an international credit card processing fee. A 12.5% service fee that covers administrative costs is assessed on all reservations.
An authority to charge of $1000 – $1500, depending on the van, will be placed on your credit card two days before your trip begins. This is not an actual charge. The authority to charge will be released, and post trip charges assessed, usually within seven days upon your return. Typical post trip charges include damages or additional fees such as refueling costs or mileage charges, etc.
The rental rate includes a mileage allowance of a certain number of miles for every night that you rent the van. If you go over the allotted miles, you’ll pay a mileage charge, plus service fee, at the end of your rental. The number of allotted miles, and the fee charged for overages, varies by van and will be specified on your rental agreement. Most vans offer 125 miles per night and charge 35 – 50 cents per mile for overages.
As an example, at 125 miles per night and 35 cents for every mile over, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, at 35 cents a mile you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip. Mileage charges are also subject to a 12.5% service fee.
Your van should have a full tank of gas when you pick it up. Please make sure to fill it back up before you return it. Alternatively, we’ll refuel for you at $9/gallon.
Driving Fines, Tolls and Fees
You are responsible for any fines, tolls, or campground registration fees. These costs are typically deducted from your security deposit.
