Taking your vehicle outside the Country

Canada: Vehicles may be driven into Canada with no restrictions. The rental counter must be notified at the time of rental that you plan to drive into Canada so we can provide a Canadian non-resident insurance card (provided at no cost). Based on availability one-way rentals may be allowed to certain Canadian cities.
Mexico: At participating border cities, corporate account customers are allowed to drive the vehicle into Mexico with certain restrictions. Check with the location for details.
Driving License and ID Requirements
A valid driver’s license from the country of residence and an acceptable credit or debit card is required (see the Payment Options section for more information) An International driving permit is also required for licenses with a non-roman alphabet.
Renters who have indicated a country of residence outside of the United States or Canada will be required to present the following at the time of rental to qualify for the quoted rate:
A driver’s license and passport issued outside of the United States or Canada
A return airline ticket
The vehicle is rented with a full tank of gas and must be returned with a full tank of gas or there will be a charge for refueling. If you have refueled please keep your receipt for verification purposes.
Most locations offer a prepaid gas option to purchase a full tank at market value which allows the customer to return the vehicle without a full tank of gas. There is no refund for unused gas.
If the vehicle is driven less than 75 miles there is a $13.99 refueling fee unless a gas receipt is presented at the time of return.
If you do not pay cash for any tolls, you automatically opt into our e-Toll service. You agree to pay for all tolls incurred during your rental and all related fees, charges and penalties. Under the e-toll program, once you pass through an electronic toll, you will pay a convenience fee of $3.95 for each day of the entire rental, including any days on which an e-toll is not used, up to a maximum of $19.75 per rental month, plus the incurred tolls at the maximum prevailing rates posted by the toll authority. You can avoid the convenience fee and any other charges by paying the toll in cash or avoiding any cashless toll road or passage. Please be aware of any “cashless toll roads”. Drivers on these roads are not able to pay cash once they have entered these roads. Driving on these roads will opt you into our e-Toll service. E-toll charges and the convenience fee will be billed to the credit/debit card on file with us. The charges may take 4-8 weeks after the rental to be billed to your credit/debit card.
Extended Roadside offers fast, dependable rescue service for our renters for a daily charge. It is offered to our customers at time of rental and provides roadside assistance for lost keys and remote entry device lockouts, flat tire service, towing (if the vehicle is inoperable), jump starts and emergency fuel delivery (up to 3 gallons).
The cost of replacing a key for most vehicles is at least $100. Locksmith charges range by area. In addition to the cost of keys, there is a tow charge or delivery fee that can range from $50 to $250 depending on the distance. By accepting the Extended Roadside Service you won’t have to worry about incurring additional expense for the listed items while on the road.
One Way Rentals
