Rental FAQ

1. What forms of payment are accepted for renting a car?

We accept VISA®, MasterCard®, American Express®, and Discover Network®.

2. Can I rent a car if I am under the age of 25?

Yes, you may rent if you are between the ages of 18-24, but additional restrictions as well as a Young Driver Fee apply.

3. Can I pick up the vehicle after hours?

Yes, you may pick up the vehicle after normal working hours in our secure parking location by following the directions we provide you upon completion of your booking. Please book and plan your trip in advance so as to avoid any inconveniences.

4. Can I extended my current car rental?

Yes, however this extension is subject to availability. An additional authorization will be placed on your credit card, and your rates are subject to change based on the length of your rental extension.
Please contact us ahead of time to take advantage of our weekly and monthly discounted rates.

5. Can I pay for the rental of car for another individual?

The renter of the vehicle must be present to sign the rental agreement and provide their credit card at the time of pick up. The renter cannot provide a credit or debit card belonging to someone else for their use. If you wish to pay for the rental car, but have someone else drive it, you can rent the vehicle in your name and add them as an additional driver. In order to add an additional driver, they would have to meet all of our driver requirements.

6. Will there be an additional charge if I am late returning the rental car?

We understand that things happen, and communication is key. We provide guests with a 30-minute grace period after the rental reservation is over. After this point, you will be billed for the additional usage of the vehicle in accordance with our Late Return Fee.

7. Do I need to refuel the vehicle before returning?

Yes, we try to start each renter’s trip with a full tank and ask that guests help keep this process running smoothly by returning vehicles with a full tank. If you are unable to refuel, we will take care of that for you at a cost of $10.00 a gallon.

8. What is your pet policy?

Unfortunately, we do not allow pets. Only Service animals used by customers with disabilities are allowed in the vehicle without a carrier. Customers need to return their car in clean condition and free of pet hair to avoid cleaning/detailing fees.

9. How much is a rental car deposit?

The deposit charge varies depending on many factors including the type of vehicle and driving history.

10. What should I do if I get into an accident in a rental car?

If you get into an auto accident in your rental car, the first thing you should do is call the police and file a police report. You should then call the support team at Lux Auto Rentals and provide information regarding the accident. Our staff will walk you through the next steps.

11. What should I do if my rental car breaks down?

If your rental car breaks down due to a mechanical failure and it is not drivable, be sure to get to a safe place out of traffic. Then, call roadside assistance at (800) 313-3993.

12. Do you offer one-way rentals?

We do offer one-way rentals to select destinations. Please contact us for pricing and availability.

14. What is an international driving permit?

An International Driving Permit (IDP) translates your government-issued driver’s license into 10 languages: English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, German, Arabic, Italian, Swedish and Portuguese.

15. I received a charge for a violation/toll. How do I know that I generated this violation or toll?

This notice was sent based upon information provided to us, as the registered owner of the vehicle, from a municipality or toll road authority. The information – based on the date, time and vehicle – indicates that you were the renter.

16. Can you send me the actual violation or toll notice?

The letter we sent you includes details about the date and time, as well as the location of the incident. However, since we typically receive only electronic notifications – which reduce processing expenses and time delays – paper copies of tickets or violations generally, are not available.

17. Why am I being charged now after my rental period has ended?

We depend on government and toll agencies for all information related to tolls and other violations. In most cases, that takes one to four weeks – although, in some circumstances, it may take even longer. Our goal is to notify you so that you are alerted as soon as possible. Under the terms and conditions in your rental agreement, you are responsible for all costs, fines, violations and tolls – as well as an administrative fee we charge for processing and billing.

18. I left an item in my rental car. Is there a lost and found?

Please be assured that we make every effort to hold items that are left behind. Please contact us immediately upon discovering the item is missing.

19. What proof of identification do I need to bring with me when collecting the vehicle?

All drivers must have a valid driver’s license in their possession to rent a vehicle. No copies or faxed licenses will be accepted at any time. The renter’s driver’s license must be valid for the entire rental period.

20. Can I rent a car with cash or check?

Unfortunately, we do not accept cash or checks when creating a reservation. Please refer to the forms of payment accepted above.

21. How much mileage is included in my trip?

All vehicles come with a certain number of miles included depending on the vehicle (can be found on vehicle listing upon booking). If you have driven more miles than were included in your rental agreement, the overage will be charged at the per mile price indicated on your rental agreement when you return the vehicle.

22. Do seasons affect rental rates?

Seasons don’t affect rates, but availability does If demand is high and only a few vehicles are still available, the rental price for the respective vehicle category increases. It is therefore worth reserving your vehicle well in advance.

23. Does the length of the rental influence the price?

Yes, one-day rentals will be charged at the regular base rate. However, renting for a week or more will lower the rates.

24. Will you check my driving record?

Yes, we check every guest’s driving record.

25. Do you rent cars by the hour?

All rates are based on a rental period with a minimum of 24 consecutive hours. If you return the vehicle within 24 hours after pick-up, you will still be charged for the full day.
