Car Rental Extensions

Car rental extensions are required if you are in a rental car and need to return it later than specified on your contract. Some companies want you to call your rental location directly, while others have a dedicated line for assistance in extending your rental car.

Remember, that the original rate of rental (per day) is not necessarily the guaranteed rate per day for the extended part of the rental. Check your contract or call to verify  extra charges, when doing car rental extensions.

Below are some company specific policies and guidelines for extending your rental car (all links open in a new window):
