Collecting your Hire Car - Florida and US Car Hire FAQ (Domestic Customers Only)

return to main FAQ page

All drivers must show their license and sign the contract before being legally allowed and insured to drive, unless your booking is with Alamo and the additional driver is your spouse or domestic partner - in which case there is no requirement for them to be present or show their license. The spouse / domestic partner must have a valid license carried with them whenever they drive the car, just like any other driver. 

If you have additional drivers arriving after you have collected the car, these can be added part way in to the rental at any local depot. Make sure you take along your paperwork (received when collecting the car) as well as a copy of your original voucher. In this case it is best to print multiple copies before you go, as you will hand in 1 copy when the car is initially collected.

You need to present your voucher (that we send you), a valid driving license for each driver (presented in person by each driver*) and a credit card that will be ''''swiped'''' by way of deposit. If your driving license is not written in the English language then you will also need to present your International Driving Permit. Dollar and Thrifty also require to see your passport.

*If your booking is with Alamo, and the additional driver is your spouse or domestic partner, then the additional driver is not required to be present or show their license on collection of the car. They are required to carry their valid license with them at all times when driving the vehicle. 

The lead driver must have a major credit card in their name when collecting the car.

Most major cards are accepted including Master Card, Amex and Visa. Visa Debit is generally accepted (excluding Electron cards). Switch / Maestro / Solo cards are not accepted. We would advice to contact us www.info@uscarhire.com if you are wanting to use a Debit Card for your rental, as some exclusions apply.  If you are able to use a Debit card for your location you must have 2 forms of ID, and a return flight ticket.

The rental company will ''''swipe'''' (pre authorize) the card on collection, up to $500. The rental company will authorize and lock off this amount, but don''t actually take the payment from your account. Once the car is returned, the deposit amount is then released.

The card used for the security deposit will be the card used at the end of your rental to take payment for the tank of fuel (on Silver Option if you choose not to return with a full tank) and will also be used to charge for any optional extras you agreed to on collection of the car, such as child seats. Your card will also be debited in the case of returning your car late, and if you had any unpaid fines or citations during your rental (such as speeding fines, parking violations and passing tolls without payment).

None of the car rental companies will deliver to your accommodation. However if you book Dollar through us, and you are staying in a hotel within 5 miles of the following depots then Dollar will collect you free of charge and take you to the depot to collect your car. Kissimmee 192 (opposite but near the Celebration Turning) Lake Buena Vista (near Down Town Disney) International Drive (at the Holiday Inn) To do the above, simply book the car from the required depot, then call the number (that will be on your voucher from us) shortly before you need the car to arrange collection.
