What does a reservation guarantee?

Your reservation guarantees a car at the rate, date and time that you reserve it for if you put a deposit down on it.Without a deposit, it is only a soft reservation, meaning first come, first serve. It does not guarantee a specific make and model of a vehicle, nor can it guarantee a reservation for another date or time. All reservations are subject to a 50% cancellation fee if cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation date. All reservations must be placed via phone or email with a friendly customer service agent. We must verify your insurance prior to renting you a vehicle.Cancellation Policy
