Rental Policies

Rental Requirements

  • All drivers must present a valid driver’s license and credit card in their own name at the time of rental.

  • Drivers must have a safe driving record and may be subject to the Department of Motor Vehicles and must agree to a DMV background check and criminal background check.

  • Only drivers listed on the Rental Agreement may operate a Vanity Exotics vehicle.

  • All drivers must be 25 years of age or older, present a valid driver’s license upon rental, have proof of full insurance coverage and may be subject to an additional underage driver fee if under the age of 25.

  • Clients from outside the United States must present their driver’s license and a valid passport at the time of rental.

  • Full insurance coverage is required on all our vehicles and must be verified prior to rental if additional coverages are declined.  Some credit card companies provide additional coverage beyond whatever personal automobile insurance may cover, but it is best to verify this with them directly before your rental.

  • Additional deposits and insurance coverage may be required on selected luxury and exotic vehicles.

  • Vanity Exotics vehicles are not allowed to enter Mexico or Canada.

  • Smoking is not permitted inside our vehicles at any time and will result in a substantial cleaning fee.

Reservations

  • You can make your reservation online at Vanity Exotics.com or by calling (800) 277-3599.

  • We will confirm your reservation by email or telephone with a reservation number.  Please contact us at least 2 weeks in advance of your rental in the event you need to make changes to or cancel your reservation.

  • Because of the exclusive nature of our business, Vanity Exotics is committed to providing you with the exact vehicle you have reserved.  There are rare situations in which the car you reserved may not be available—for example, the previous customer fails to return the vehicle on time or it is returned with physical damage or a mechanical problem which makes it impossible to deliver the vehicle to you. In the event this happens, we will provide a full refund and will reschedule another time that is convenient for you.

  • The total amount indicated on your reservation is only an estimate of most of the anticipated charges that may be due upon return of your vehicle.  This estimate excludes the following types of charges:

  • Coverages

  • Taxes

  • Service fees

  • Fuel charges

  • Excess mileage charges

Cancellations & No Shows

  • Due to the high demand for our vehicles, Vanity Exotics requires a cancellation notice of at least 14 days. Cancellations within 14 days of reservations are subject to a cancellation fee of 50% of your booking deposit amount.

  • Cancellations received less than 48 hours before the reserved rental time are subject to one full day rental charge plus all applicable taxes.

  • There is no charge for cancellations received more than 14 days before the reserved rental time.

  • If you do not show up for your rental you may be subject to one full day rental charge plus all applicable taxes.

Rental Charges

  • All rental rates are based on a 23-hour period; vehicles are not available at an hourly rate.

  • Daily, weekly and monthly rates vary by vehicle and by seasonal availability and are subject to change without notice.

  • A set amount of mileage may be included with your rental; excess mileage charges may be billed at the rate specified on your rental agreement.

  • Your rental vehicle must be returned with the same level of fuel as when it went out or you will be charged $7.00 per gallon to fill the tank.  If the tank was not full when you rented the vehicle and you refuel your vehicle prior to returning it you may want to provide us with a copy of your gas receipt.

  • Applicable local and airport taxes—including a vehicle license fee (VLF)—can also be charged on your rental agreement.

  • We do offer a one hour grace period to return your vehicle.  If you exceed the 23-hour rental period by more than one hour, a per hour late charge will be applied for each hour the vehicle is late, and depending on the vehicle may result in an additional full day rental charge.

  • Additional equipment fees, cleaning and damage fees may apply.

Payment Methods

  • A valid credit card is required for all Vanity Exotics reservations, and upon rental of a vehicle a credit card authorization may be taken to cover the full amount of the anticipated rental charges for the expected rental term.

  • The following credit cards are accepted:

    • VISA

    • Master Card

    • American Express

    • Discover

  • A credit card authorization deposit amount will vary depending on the type and value of the vehicle.  High-end luxury and exotic vehicles will understandably require a larger authorization amount.

  • Debit cards, check cards, and prepaid or stored value cards may not be used to make a reservation or open a rental agreement.  Such cards may only be used to pay for your rental charges once the car is returned.  This policy is for your protection, as a deposit authorization makes these funds unavailable to you until several days after the final charge transaction is processed.

  • We also accept cash and traveler’s checks.

  • If you have a long-term rental, or you have not returned your rental vehicle by the return date on the rental agreement, we may charge your credit card for a portion or the entire amount of the rental prior to your returning the vehicle to us.

For legal specifics of our vehicle rentals, please refer to the Terms & Conditions section below.
