Breach

If the renter breaches the Rental Agreement by violating any of the conditions or terms of the Agreement, the renter must immediately pay any and all charges including fines, penalties and physical property damage.

Ownership of Vehicles

The vehicle is the property of Bargain Rent-a- Car (Jamaica) Limited. The renter is not regarded as an agent, employee or servant of the owner for any reason or purpose at any time.

Fuel

It is our policy to provide the rented vehicle with a full tank of fuel. We recommend that you refuel the Avis car before returning it, because while we do offer a refueling service, it will be at a price higher than at the pump.

Length of Rental

A rental day is 24 hours. Reservations for less than one day are accepted, however a minimum charge of one day applies to rentals of less than 24 hours. In some cases, a minimum rental period is required for the selected rate to apply. In other cases, a rate may be associated with a minimum charge, which applies even if the car is returned early.

Changes to Reservations

Extending your Rental

Please be aware that any changes to your original rental may impact your rate. If you wish to extend any rental once you have picked up your vehicle, in Jamaica you must contact an Avis reservation agent.

Also, if you choose not to return the car on or before your originally scheduled return date, we will place an additional hold on your debit or credit card to cover the additional expected rental charges. Upon your return of the car, the holds will be released, and the actual cost of the rental will be charged. Your bank may take up to two weeks to post the released credit hold to your card. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for any returned checks due to debit card hold processing.

Mileage

Our rental rates include unlimited mileage.

Liability

The renter is responsible for the full value of the rental vehicle. In order to reduce this liability, he/she may purchase one of our waivers. Otherwise, the rental vehicle may be covered by a participating credit card or insurance policy.

Insurance

The owner, Bargain Rent-a- Car (Jamaica) Limited/Avis Jamaica, shall provide liability insurance with minimum limits of coverage as required by Jamaican law and the renter agrees to be bound by the conditions, restrictions and terms of said coverage. However, if the renter is covered by any other insurance, the coverage provided by the owner shall be excess coverage.
