  1. The Rental Agreement. This terms and conditions, attached hereto and any additional agreement signed by me and any links to on-line documents or agreements sent to me electronically in connection with my rental, together constitute the “Rental Agreement” you and me. The word “car” in the Rental Agreement means the vehicle rented to me or its replacement and includes tires, tools, keys, key fobs, equipment, included and optional accessories, plates, documents, and any other products or property provided by you with the vehicle and separately rented to me by you unless otherwise explicitly specified in the Rental Agreement.
  2. Representation. I represent to you, that I am a capable and validly licensed driver and will remain a capable and validly licensed driver throughout the term of your rental. I agree that you have the right to verify that my license has been validly issued and is in good standing (not suspended, revoked, or otherwise restricted in any way) as a condition precedent to each rental; and that you may in your sole discretion refuse to rent to me if my license is not in good standing. You reserve the right to deny rentals based upon (i) information about my license status, (ii) authenticity of my driver’s license or other credentials, (iii) the inability to verify my identity or payment methods, or (iv) any other information received from any other source in the business of validating an identity or the driver’s license credential that you believe to be reliable. 
  3. Who may drive the Car. Except where otherwise specifically authorized, I am the only person authorized to drive the car. Any person other than me that operates the car must sign an additional driver form at the time of the rental (“Permitted Driver”). I acknowledge that I will always remain financially responsible under the Rental Agreement even if the car is operated by a Permitted Driver or someone other than me.
  4. Return of the Car. I agree to return the car in the same condition that I received it, ordinary wear and tear excepted, on the date, at the time and to the following location: Carr #2 Km 16.6 Toa Baja, PR. There may be a rate or special charges if I return it to a different location. If I return it earlier or later, a different or higher rental rate may apply and, if returned later, you may also charge me a late return fee. I may not return the car outside of the return location’s operating hours unless specifically allowed by that location.  If I do, my responsibility for damage to or loss of the car will continue, and all charges stated on the Rental Agreement as a periodic rate will continue to accrue until the return location reopens and I process the return of the car. If you do not find the car when that location opens, my responsibility for all charges and for damage to or loss of the car will continue until the car is returned or recovered. If I wish to extend any rental, I will contact you at 787-338-5857 or use a method you approve to request the extension before my return date. You may or may not grant an extension or decline to grant it for the entire period I request, in your sole discretion.  I will return the car sooner on your demand.
