  • Be over 25 years of age (if less than 25 yet older than 21, a special rate applies).

The cardholder may acquire an “Additional Driver” option to extend coverage and use of the vehicle to a third party.

  • Have and present a valid driver license.
  • Cover the security deposit upon opening the contract.

 

If I make a reservation, why don’t they give me the make and model of vehicle I prefer?
Upon making a reservation, what you are selecting is a vehicle category, not a specific model. The categories group vehicles according to their characteristics, passenger capacity and trunk / luggage space. Each group may contain various automotive makes and models, all with the standards of quality and comfort with which we are committed to our clients. Upon reservation, TEN Car Rental assures you delivery of a vehicle in the category reserved.

What if I have and accident but it was not my fault?

The moment the vehicle is delivered, you become responsible for all loss or damage caused while the vehicle is in your power, having to absorb all costs for damages or loss. However, by acquiring our Ten “No Worries” Protection Program, you will not be responsible for any contingency, the deductible is 0% and thereby there are no costs to cover.

 

What credit cards does TEN Car Rental accept?

TEN Car Rental accepts the most recognized cards, such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

 

Can I rent a car with a debit card?

The funds linked to a debit card do not constitute a line of credit and therefore it is not possible to request a guarantee on them.

 

Can I rent a car without credit card and pay with cash?

Debit Cards and cash can be used as a final method of payment upon returning the vehicle in acceptable state and on time, however the only way to obtain a guarantee at the moment of contracting the service is with a credit card.


Is it possible to pre-pay with my credit card and request the vehicle be delivered to another person?
For security reasons, the signatory on the contract must also be the credit card holder with which the pre-payment is made. However, the Additional Driver option is available, which is to say the person paying can enable a third party to drive as well as extend the contracted coverage to that person.

 Can I make reservations from my smart phone?

Of course, simply go to www.tencarrental.com from your smart phone to start your reservation.

 

Can the bill be made to another person or company?
The bill can be issued to any company or person desired, even if different than the signatory of the rental contract.
