Cross Border

Conditional:

Depending on which countries to bring the rental cars to, policies differ:
Mexico, Canada
A vehicle can be driven across the Canadian border at any time, no matter what location it was rented from. It is recommended to have PERS coverage when using vehicle in cross border rentals for the US and Canada. The renter must have a valid driver\'s license and rental record to cross the border into Canada. Canadian law does require that everyone entering the country have a passport, so everyone in the vehicle must have the proper identification. If a renter (including a Canadian resident) is driving a U.S. rented (and licensed in the U.S.) vehicle to Canada, it can only be driven across the border for up to 30 days unless an extension is requested from Customs at the time of entry.

    Like: pick up/drop off instructions were easy to understand. Booking process was smooth and efficient. Excellent value for money.
    Dislike: At the rental counter i felt like i was unnecessarily sold an unlimited toll fee package which i didn't really need. And also looking back at receipt i seem to have been charged for a concession fee recovery which i thought fro my booking was included in the price.
