Rates subject to change without notice.

We are not responsible for changes, omissions or errors in any information contained in this website.

Rental Rates do not include $1.15 per day License Tag Fees nor Obligatory Insurance,
either CDW or SLI, one of which must be purchased.
See "INSURANCES" below.

* Weekly rates are based on 6 days rental fee with the 7th day's rental fee being free, but you still pay the 7 days in tag fees and insurance.

** INSURANCES:

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) Insurance is mandatory and covers the rented vehicle for collision damage and roll over caused by accident. CDW can be declined if the client has a credit card that covers CDW. If you decline CDW, you MUST buy SLI (Supplemental Liability Insurance). See rates below. Without CDW Coverage customer is responsible for the deductible in case of damages. In case of damage due to a traffic accident, you must have a report from a CR Traffic Police officer. In case of other damages, such as due to a break-in or vandalism of the vehicle, you'll need a local police report, otherwise insurance will not cover it.

SLI (Supplemental Liability Insurance):

Supplemental Liability Insurance covers your liability to third parties or properties resulting from auto accident.
You may decline SLI ONLY IF you pay for CDW INSURANCE and if you do decline SLI because you paid for CDW coverage you will be responsible for all damages caused to third party properties.

Prices for SLI are: (In USD, Per day):

SUZUKI ALTO / MITSUBISHI LANCER     $ 10.00
NISSAN ALMERA / NISSAN TIIDA            $ 10.00
SUZUKI JIMNY / SUZUKI GRAN VITARA  $ 12.00
NISSAN X-TERRA/ MITSUBISHI MONTERO SPORT  $ 15.00
MITSUBISHI MONTERO 7 PAX / MITSUBISHI L300 12 PAX  $ 15.00

VIC: (Vandalism Insurance Coverage) USD $6.00 per day for all categories
It covers vandalism to the rented vehicle: radio, door locks and windows. (Applies only for rentals of more than 3 days and for customers with foreign driverís license).  Customer must present police reports for all incidents.

INSURANCE FROM ANY PRIVATE COMPANY IS NOT ACCEPTED


*** Security Deposit:

As with all major car rental companies, a credit card deposit of $750, $1,000 or $1,500 is required, depending on the vehicle, to cover the insurance deductible and security risks and is guaranteed by a separate credit card voucher drawn for the specified amount. This credit card voucher will be cancelled and returned when vehicle is returned in the same condition as rented. An inspection of the vehicle before and after the rental is performed in your presence. Some credit card issuers offer protection for the deductible amount, but you are still liable for this amount, for which in case of damage to the vehicle your card will be charged and it will be up to you to settle with your credit card issuer when you get home. Therefore you may prefer the additional Damage coverage CDW. 

Requirements:

CDW insurance is mandatory. Can be decline if credit card covers, which will make taking SLI Mandatory.
Valid driver's license.
Valid passport.
Visa, Amex, Master Card, and Dinners Credit Cards accepted.
Minimum rental, 24 hours.
Deductible Security Deposits:
$750.00 (vehicles A,B,C).  $1.000.00 ( E,F,G,H).  $1.500.00 (vehicles I,J,K,L,M)
