  • You don’t have to stay on route; you can go FREESTYLE if you want to, no problem. But the car only talks on the designated routes.
  • All vehicles are covered by a liability policy for the legal state minimums that provide 3rd parties around you with coverage in event of an accident. Your rental agreement however, excludes our renters from accessing that policy. So you may be liable for damages or losses that occur during your rental. We offer you extra insurance options to manage your liability that your rental may incur such as a CDW and SLI. Ask our agents about these options when you arrive.
