You should have three things with you when you arrive to pick-up your rental car:
A valid U.S. drivers license or a valid driver's license issued from your country of residence and an International Driver's Permit -- you'll need to present it at the rental counter to prove your identity, verify your birth-date and, if necessary, for a driving record check.
Your Rental Car Itinerary/Receipt - which is available on the homepage of our website at the top right-hand corner of the page. Enter your Request Number and your receipt and full itinerary will be right there for you to print.
A valid major credit card with available credit. A debit/check card that has a Mastercard or Visa logo is accepted but also needs to have available credit as the rental car companies require this as a security deposit on the car. The driver will also need to have this available credit if they choose to purchase optional items at the rental counter.
Cash: The driver will not be allowed to leave a cash deposit in lieu of a credit card or debit/check card.
Yes you can rent a car in Canada, Europe, and other International locations. For rental cars in Mexico, please ask the rental partner what their specific policies are once you are at the rental counter. We offer great savings, selection, and customer service for your international rental car travel. Simply go to our homepage and type the name of the city or airport you are traveling to in the search fields at the top of the page.
Important Information Regarding Exchange Rates: Purchases made on our web site are transacted exclusively in United States Dollars (USD). If you make a purchase from us using a non-USD-denominated credit or debit card, please be aware that, due to the constant fluctuation in exchange rates, our charge to your card or the estimated charge amount we provide you, may differ based on the exchange rate at the time you make your reservation versus the rate at the time the charge is reflected on your credit card statement. Also, in the event that we must credit your account, we will refund the exact USD amount initially charged and will not be responsible for any fluctuations in exchange rates which may cause differences in your billing statement.
If the driver of the car is not a U.S. resident, the driver must present a valid International driver's license at the rental counter when renting a car in the United States. Most U.S. rental car companies accept international credit cards.
We offer the following car types:
Our web site includes a full description of each car type, including the typical number of passengers and pieces of luggage each will accommodate. Rental car companies carry a variety of makes and models for each car type listed above. As a result, the rental car companies are not able to guarantee the specific make or model you will receive at the rental counter. Requests for non-smoking vehicles should be made at the rental counter. Rental car companies are not able to guarantee the availability of a non-smoking vehicle.
You can submit a request for a rental car that someone else will be driving as long as you enter the driver's full name and age and the driver meets the following requirements:
Has a valid driver's license issued in his or her full name - the rental company will verify age and may check the driver's driving record. Non-U.S. residents must present a valid international driver's license from his/her home country.
Has a valid credit card with a minimum of $200 or more of available credit. Most locations also accept debit cards.
Meets the minimum age requirements.
Keep in mind that when you initial the request on our Web site you are indicating that the DRIVER accepts all of Priceline Partner Network Rental Cars. Terms and Conditions and that the driver will be denied rental if any of the above criteria are not met.
Yes. You can book a rental car reservation with a different pick-up and drop-off location (also known as a ""one-way"" rental). For example, you can enter a pick-up location in Orlando and a drop-off location in Miami if that is where you will end your trip.
One-way reservations are currently limited to airport locations only (for example, pick-up at Orlando International Airport and drop-off at Miami International Airport.) There may also be a ""drop-off"" fee charged by the rental car company. One-way rentals from off airport locations will be available soon.
Know Your Insurance Coverage:
Be sure to research the insurance coverage available on your current automobile policy, your credit card agreement and your homeowners or renter.s policy prior to picking up your rental car. This will help you make the most informed decision about optional coverages offered at the rental counter.
Inspect the Condition of Your Rental Car: Take a walk around your rental car with an agent before you leave the rental location. Be sure to make note of any scratches, dents, dings, etc. and report them so there is no confusion regarding the car.s condition upon return.
Get to Know the Features on Your Rental Car: Take a few minutes before you leave the rental location to familiarize yourself with where everything is on your rental car. Check the headlights, hazards, windshield wipers, door locks, spare tire, etc.
Look at a Map Before Leaving the Airport: Be sure to ask the agent at the rental counter for directions or a map of the area. Most rental car companies provide free maps as a courtesy.
Avoid Additional Charges at Drop-off: Be sure to return your rental car at the designated date and time on your rental agreement to avoid extra day and/or extra hour charges. If you do not opt to pre-purchase gas at the rental counter, be sure the gas tank is full upon return to avoid gas and re-fueling fees.
When you choose your rental car company and your exact rate we will provide an estimate of what the rental car company will charge you when you rent the car. This estimate is based on information available from the rental car company directly and includes an estimate of taxes, fees, and surcharges that may apply to your transaction at the time of reservation. It does not include any additional gas, fees, or other surcharges.
Please check with the rental car company when you are at the rental counter for complete rate details.
Pointer - If you have any questions about what you.ve been charged - check your paperwork! Charges for optional items will be listed on your rental agreement (provided by the rental company) and you are often required to initial by them at pick-up. Any questions concerning optional items should be directed to the rental company that accepts your request.
Please read the following information, which will help you to understand your rental agreement and clarify any charges.
Your rental agreement shows charges for all optional items (insurance, gasoline, upgrades, extensions, ski-racks, cell phones, etc.) you elect to take at the rental counter, and you are typically required to initial by them when you pick up your car. These charges are in addition to the cost of your rental.
We do not have access to the actual rental contract you signed at the counter or any additional charges the rental car company billed to you based on that contract. If you have questions about any of the charges on your rental, you will need to contact the rental car company directly.
Here is a definition of terms to help you understand your rental agreement:
COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER (CDW/LDW):
This item involves waiving or limiting your personal responsibility for damage to or loss of your rental car.
EXTENDED PROTECTION/LIABILITY COVERAGE (EP/SLI):
Protection for claims made against you.
PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE (PAI):
Coverage for renters in the event of accidental death or bodily injury for the duration of the rental.
PERSONAL EFFECTS COVERAGE (PEC):
Coverage for damaged or stolen personal property.
PREPAY FOR A FULL TANK (GAS A):
Prepaying for gas at the rental counter upon vehicle pick-UP - UNUSED GASOLINE IS NOT REFUNDED.
REFUEL UPON RETURN (GAS B):
Rental Car companies charge for gas if a customer does not pre-pay and returns the car with less than a full tank.
Rental car companies charge for additional items you elect to add at the rental counter - such as child safety seats, ski racks, cell phones, navigation equipment, etc.
These charges vary by rental company and are not included in the cost of the retnal reservations itself.
We do not have the ability to view our rental partner's rental agreements and each partner has a different version, however, this is an idea of what you might see.
We are a 100% independently-owned website, not run by any auto rental company.

There are two main types of car rental insurance:
Damage ("CDW"): Typically, this covers damage or loss of the car through collision, vandalism or theft.
Liability ("SLI"): Typically, this covers injury or damage to another person, or to another personal propertyIf you have purchased Collision Damage Waiver coverage on AutoRentals.com through RoamRight insurance, you do not need to purchase additional collision damage insurance at the counter. You may also enjoy additional coverage from your existing car insurance, homeowners policy and/or the credit card you use to pay for your rental car. Prior to your arrival at Los Angeles Intl in Los Angeles, CA, we recommend you check the details of any coverage you may already have, and print out evidence of coverage to present at the rental car counter if any question about coverage should arise.
If you wish to add an additional driver, you must do so at the rental car counter and the person being added as an additional driver must be present. There may be a charge for each additional driver, although in some cases the fee is waived for spouses.
Some rental locations will permit you to add additional equipment such as GPS navigation, child seats and ski racks at the counter for an additional charge. You may inquire about these add on items at the rental counter or by contacting us at email@example.com.

PPN requires all agents to whom Personal Data is disclosed to enter into confidentiality agreements and to agree to act in a manner consistent with the relevant principles articulated in this Policy.
External Service Providers: When you use the PPN service to purchase an airline ticket, reserve a hotel room or a rental car or to take advantage of any of our other products and services (including travel insurance and destination attractions), we provide Personal Data to the airline, hotel, car rental agency, travel agency or other involved third-party.
Future Business Transfers: Our business is constantly changing. As part of that process, PPN may sell or buy other companies, and Personal Data may be transferred as part of these transactions. It is also possible that PPN, or substantially all of its assets, may be acquired by another company, whether by merger, sale of assets or otherwise, and Personal Data may be transferred as part of such a transaction.
Compliance with Law and Other Disclosures: PPN reserves the right to release Personal Data in order to comply with applicable law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our the Site. We may also release Personal Data to enforce or apply the terms and conditions applicable to our products and services, protect us or others against fraudulent or inappropriate activities, or otherwise protect the rights, property or safety of PPN, our affiliated companies, our customers, or others.

The contract of carriage in use by the applicable airline, when issued, shall be between the applicable airline and the passenger.

You acknowledge that the airlines generally prohibit all such tickets, and therefore we do not guarantee that the airline will honor your ticket or tickets. You agree to indemnify the Covered Parties against airline claims for the difference between the full fare of your actual itinerary and the value of the ticket or tickets that you purchased.
Taxes and Fees Charges
Government imposed taxes and fees and any applicable airline imposed fees are either included in your fare or itemized separately on your checkout page to provide a trip cost. For international flights, as described below, Entry or Exit Fees may be charged that are not included in your fare or itemized separately on your checkout page. PPN does not charge a booking or processing fee on published-price airline tickets; however, paper ticket fees, itinerary change/cancellation/refund fees, baggage fees and Entry or Exit fees on certain international flights may apply to your itinerary, as described below;
a. Paper Ticket Fees: A $24.95 USD shipping and handling fee will be charged if your itinerary requires the issuance of paper tickets. If your tickets are rerouted or are undeliverable and are returned, there will be an additional $24.95 USD re-handling fee. Note: This fee, if applicable, will be displayed on your contract prior to purchase.
b. Itinerary Changes/Cancellations/Refunds: Air travel itinerary changes, if permitted by the fare, may have a change fee charged by the airline typically ranging between $100 and $250 USD per ticket that will vary by market, carrier and specific fare rule. In addition, any changes to your itinerary will incur a $30 USD per ticket PPN change or cancellation fee.
c. Baggage Fees: The airlines may require you to pay additional fees at the airport if you exceed certain limits as dictated by the airline, such as the number of bags or weight allowed, and some airlines do not offer a free baggage allowance.
d. Entry/Exit Fees: If you are traveling internationally, some countries or airports charge fees upon entering and/or exiting the country. These fees are not included in the ticket price, or the taxes and fees we display on our website prior to purchase. For more information on a specific country's entry/exit fee, we suggest that you visit www.travel.state.gov prior to departure.
C. Hotel Service Restrictions
a. Check In: Upon check-in, guests must present a valid ID and credit card or, in the hotel's discretion, debit card, in their name that is consistent with the transactional details provided to PPN (the amount of available credit required will vary by hotel). Debit cards may not be accepted.
b. Double Occupancy: All hotel reservations are guaranteed for double occupancy (one double bed or two twin beds).
c. Late Arrival and Failure to Check-in on First Night: If you are going to be delayed on your date of check in or find that you cannot check in to your hotel on the date you requested, you should contact the hotel to let them know. If you fail to check in to your hotel on the day of your reservation and do not alert the hotel, the remaining portion of your reservation may be canceled and you may not be entitled to a refund, depending on the terms and conditions of the applicable hotel.
d. Disability Needs: If you have disability needs (for example only, you need a wheelchair accessible room or require the use of a service animal) you must call the hotel and verify that disability needs can be met. If your disability needs cannot be accommodated by the hotel, please call PPN customer service.
e. Hotel Accommodations and Special Requests: Depending upon which PPN hotel reservation service you use, you may or may not be able to select your room type and number and type of beds. Room assignments are based on hotel availability and are at the hotel's discretion. We cannot guarantee a non-smoking room. If you have special requests (including, for example, preferences for smoking or nonsmoking rooms, a specific room, particular bedding, floor location, closeness to an elevator, connecting rooms, or pet accommodations), you must call the hotel and verify that special requests can be met after you have made your booking. Since PPN has no control over which room a hotel will assign to you, PPN cannot accommodate special requests in advance of your booking and cannot guarantee that special requests will be met.
f. Must be 21 Years of Age: The guest on the reservation must be 21 years or older to check into the hotel.
g. Frequent Traveler Points: Frequent traveler points, upgrades, certificate vouchers and other discounts or incentives may not apply to PPN's hotel services.
h. Hotel Star Ratings (General): PPN's star rating system is provided for your reference. Like other well-known hotel rating systems, PPN considers a number of factors in evaluating the quality of participating hotels such as: amenities, facilities, reputation, brand, other rating services, customer feedback from guests who have stayed at the hotel, etc., to assign a single star rating. PPN screens participating hotels carefully and updates our information periodically to ensure the validity of our ratings. Our ratings systems may sometimes differ from those of other rating systems that you may be familiar with. We do not warrant or guarantee that our star rating system is equal to or consistent with any other star rating system and reserve the right to change a hotel's rating at any time with or without notice.
i. Prices: Sometimes cheaper rates are available for a specific stay at a hotel, however, these rates made by hotels may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect of cancellation and refund. Please check the room and rate details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
2. Merchant Price Disclosed Hotel Service
PPN.s Merchant Price Disclosed Hotel Service are hotel services whereby PPN acts as the merchant of record on the transaction (i.e., directly charges your credit or debit card and not the hotel).
Hotel bookings made available through PPN.s Merchant Price Disclosed Hotel Service are subject to the disclosed terms and conditions on your contract page and the disclosed terms and conditions of the applicable hotel you select.
The "Total Charges" that you will pay for using our Merchant Price Disclosed Hotel Service will always be disclosed to you before you submit your Request.
Charges for Taxes and Service Fees: In connection with facilitating your hotel transaction, we will charge your method of payment for Taxes and for Service Fees. This charge includes an anticipated amount to recover the amount we pay to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes owed by the hotel including, without limitation, sales and use tax, occupancy tax, room tax, excise tax, value added tax and/or other similar taxes. In certain locations, the tax amount may also include government imposed service fees or other fees not paid directly to the taxing authorities but required by law to be collected by the hotel. The amount paid to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes may vary from the amount we anticipate and include in the charge to you. The balance of the charge for Taxes and Service Fees is a fee we retain as part of the compensation for our services and to cover the costs of your reservation, including, for example, customer service costs. The charge for Taxes and Service Fees varies based on a number of factors including, without limitation, the amount we pay the hotel and the location of the hotel where you will be staying, and may include profit that we retain.
Except as described below, we are not the vendor collecting and remitting taxes to the applicable taxing authorities. Our hotel suppliers, as vendors, bill all applicable taxes to us and we pay over such amounts directly to the vendors. We are not a co-vendor associated with the vendor with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements.

You will be provided with a "Total Estimated Charges" line item on your contract page that will provide you with an estimate of what the hotel will charge you and you will be notified whether or not that estimate includes taxes. i
For Agency Hotel Service transactions, the information that we disclose regarding each hotel is based on the information provided to us by the hotel. As such, the hotels are given access to a platform through which they are fully responsible for updating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our website. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services, we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our website or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each hotel remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed. Hotels offered through our Agency Hotel Service do not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement by us of (the quality, service level or rating of) any hotel made available.

Unless expressly stated, taxes and service fees are excluded from your room rate, and in addition to the "Total Estimated Charges" shown, you will be charged applicable taxes, including, without limitation, sales and use tax, occupancy tax, room tax, excise tax, value added tax and/or other similar taxes, by the hotel you select.

For certain rates or special offers that state that a deposit is required (which will be disclosed in the Important Information section of your contract page), please note that your credit card may be pre-authorized or charged by the hotel (sometimes without any option for refund) upon reservation and confirmation of the booking. Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.

Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. If you wish to review, adjust or cancel, please revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein.
