Rental Policies

Advantage Car & Truck Rental serves many communities across Ontario, Canada. Following are the policies that we have regarding all car and truck rental customers.

The following policies apply to all locations. Please review the specific policies as needed before reserving your vehicle.

Customer Pick-Up and Drop-Off

We are pleased to offer this service for all of our customers. Advantage Car and Truck Rentals’ pick-up and drop-off services are designed to assist with the rental process, therefore this service is restricted within a reasonable geographical area within the city where the rental is to take place. Currently, customer pick-up or drop-off is limited to an area within several kilometer of the rental location. Any exceptions to this practice is at Advantage’s discretion and the specific location’s geographical pickup and drop off zone.

Rates and Price Quotations

Rates and prices vary greatly as with all businesses. All rates and prices are verified at the time of rental and the prices that are recorded on the documentation are received at the time of rental and are final, regardless of moment to moment verbal discussions.

Grace Period

Renters are allowed one hour (60 minutes) “grace” period upon return. If the rental exceeds the grace period, an hourly rate applies to a maximum of a daily rate. If the rental exceeds this grace period, ALL hours are subject to the hourly rate to the maximum of a daily rate.

Rate Disagreement

Any dispute in rates must be corrected at the individual location. As with all companies, online rates are subject to fluctuate on an hourly basis based on fleet availability factors.

Vehicle Types and Classes

We always endeavor to fulfill all customer requests for specific vehicle types or models, but due to the nature of vehicle rentals, Advantage reserves the right to change vehicle types or classes without warning or notification. These changes are at the discretion of Advantage staff and are without compensation or adjustment.

Deposits and Credit Card Use

The renter listed on the rental agreement must have a valid major credit card that matches with the drivers license. A minimum of $250 security hold PLUS the full payment of the rental is required at the time of pick up.

Proof of Insurance

When a personal insurance policy is being used to cover the vehicle, proof of a valid policy is required. In some cases, proof of insurance may be required for credit card policies if it is an out-of-the-ordinary circumstance. Most credit card policies are well known, additional proof will not be required when using a credit card policy to cover our vehicle.
