All our car hire is fully inclusive - you have nothing to pay on arrival. **
* In downtown Manhattan locations, the Gold option with Alamo and National does not include the cost of the initial tank of gas.
** For collections from Chicago O'Hare Airport only, a CFC charge is payable locally at the desk on arrival. Contact us for an estimate of this if you are affected.
On the Silver Options, what is the approximate cost of a tank of fuel?
- If you opt to return the car empty, this can vary depending on the size of car, and the current average cost of fuel on the day. Alamo and National charge the actual fuel cost at the time charged, whereas other suppliers mark up the fuel cost, sometimes to around double the pump price. We recommend you return the car full to avoid the refuelling charge.
The information below applies to bookings made though many other rental companies or most fly-drive packages (we include all the fees listed below in our price)
The charges below DO NOT apply to bookings through us as they are already included in our prices.
The following are extras you are likely to have to pay on arrival if booking through other companies:
|CDW / LDW Insurance||$14-$20 per day|
|SLI Insurance||approx $10 per day|
|UMP Insurance||approx $10 per day|
|State and local taxes||15-16% of total cost|
|Airport user fee||4-10% of total cost|
|Homeland Security Fee||Varies|
|Additional driver fees||approx $7 - $10 per driver per day|
This can have a substantial effect on the cost of your car hire, meaning you can be paying up to £300 to £500 extra on arrival for a 14 night stay! If you book our fully inclusive car hire these additional expenses are automatically included and you will be required to pay nothing extra on arrival.
