THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES
All renters and authorized additional drivers must be over 25 years of age and have a valid driver’s license to drive Ocean Drive cars, no exceptions. Additional driver’s cost $49/day limit 2 per car. All Driver’s must have insurance coverage or purchase Ocean Drive insurance.
All renters are required to provide two separate forms of identification which would include driver’s license and major credit card/debit card or passport. At least one ID must have a picture on it.
All US resident renters must provide evidence of car insurance coverage or purchase coverage from Ocean Drive. Ocean Drive will contact the renter’s insurance company to verify coverage in place. If insurance coverage is needed, Ocean Drive will determine the needs of the renter and offer coverage accordingly. In the event the renter selects to use Ocean Drive coverage, their rental deposit authorization will also act as their deductible. In the event a renter elects Ocean Drive insurance the deposit authorization is typically double that of someone who provides their own coverage. All non-US residents must purchase coverage from Ocean Drive. Average daily rates vary from $75 to $495/day based on the vehicle class and value.
All renters must have a clean driving record and no major criminal record, no felonies or violent crimes and no DUIs/DWIs. Ocean Drive reserves the right to cancel any reservation where the renter is considered not qualified based on either of the two records stated, even after the rental has begun.
All renters are required to pay a deposit authorization on a major credit card prior to rental in addition to the cost of the actual rental fees. Deposits vary between $500 and $20,000 based on the vehicle selected. This deposit is taken on the day of the rental and is released at the conclusion of the rental. It is not a transaction in most cases, just a hold of the funds.
Ocean Drive does allow additional authorized drivers on most of our vehicles. These drivers must be entirely covered by their own insurance or purchase additional coverage for an additional driver if the renter selects Ocean Drive coverage. There are additional fees for this coverage. In most cases , a person who is an additional driver on someone’s personal insurance is not covered to drive a rental vehicle. Our renter can make this change on their policy or ask Ocean Drive to help. The party who is paying for the rental may reserve the vehicle for an additional driver. However, the party who is paying for the rental must be present at the time of delivery or pick-up to sign for the reservation and rental agreement. In the event this is not possible, Ocean Drive will require the renter to send whatever documentation is necessary to feel comfortable there is no fraud being committed. Unfortunately, Ocean Drive cannot rent to a renter who is paying for another person to drive and does not intend to be seen in person without these added measures.
No renter may take an Ocean Drive vehicle more than 100 miles North, 200 miles South or 120 miles West of Fort Lauderdale Beach 33316 without express written consent from an Ocean Drive representative. Trips to Naples, the Florida Keys and North of Jupiter must be approved in writing prior to departure by an Ocean Drive employee.
At the time of the reservation Ocean Drive will charge 100% of the total rental rate on a major credit card which is not-refundable with zero exceptions. Ocean Drive has specific vehicles in specific colors and trims, consider this the same as booking a wedding venue, it is one of a kind. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR CANCELATION. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR CANCELATION. YOU MAY HAVE A CREDIT GOOD TOWARDS 50% OF A FUTURE RENTAL ONLY. THIS IS NOT TRANSFERRABLE AND EXPIRES 6 MONTHS AFTER ISSUED. If you think may need to cancel, do not book it. Within 24 hours or less prior to rental delivery or pick-up, Ocean Drive will place the deposit authorization on the card on file. We must have this authorization successfully transacted in order to release the vehicle to the renter.
Some rentals are subject to a delivery fee which include many of our exotic vehicles if reserved for only 24 hours. Any rentals outside of the area may include a fee. In some cases if the delivery is out of our radius, we may require the rental to pay for our flatbed tow truck to deliver and pickup. Rates vary based on distance. You may pay the towing company directly. There is an added fee for our employee’s role in the delivery and pickup. If a vehicle is rented or hired from Ocean Drive Exotic Cars the renter/customer understands that should the service be provided, no refund is due. However, if the service was not provided, example, the vehicle rented should break down, Ocean Drive will offer a replacement vehicle at the daily rate listed on the website, and or a refund for the hours/day/days of use that were not available.
All rentals include 50 to 100 daily miles per vehicle at no additional charge and are subject to an additional mileage rate of between $1.00 and $50.00 per mile which is calculated at the end of the rental. Renter’s may purchase additional miles prior to the rental for a discount. If all of the pre-purchased additional miles are not used, there is no refund allowed.
Ocean Drive keeps track of all vehicles using 24/7 tracking for excessive speeding and reckless driving as part of our agreement with local and State law enforcement to protect our renters and also the other drivers on the road. Also, if a renter is determined to be deliberately gunning the engine and jamming the breaks in slow driving zones, or downshifting to first gear during the rental, the rental will be terminated and Ocean Drive will come to retrieve the vehicle and forfeit their entire deposit. If a vehicle is taken within 1 mile of any raceway or speedway Ocean Drive reserves the right to cancel the rental and come retrieve the vehicle right away unless permission to visit a raceway has been approved by Ocean Drive in advance in writing. No Ocean Drive cars are permitted to be driven off road or on race tracks. In the event we determine the vehicles were driven off road or on a race track the customer will be liable for the retail purchase price of the vehicle based on the Kelly blue book value for that vehicle with the mileage documented on the rental agreement at the start of the rental.
Ocean Drive reserves the right to cancel any reservation where we have identified a customer is exceeding any posted speed limit on any local road, highway, interstate, or other legal paved driving environment.
Tolls: Renters are required to pay all tolls. Ocean Drive includes a toll road Florida State SunPass in each vehicle. At the end of your rental we will calculate the tolls used while the car was in your possession if any exist, and charge your card for the cost of the tolls plus 3% processing fee. Renters may also choose to pay for a daily fee for unlimited tolls when making their reservation.
Refunds: Ocean Drive Exotic Cars does not provide a refund for any services that are provided and accepted by our customers. If a customer should rent a vehicle in our fleet the rental is cancelled, we also do not provide refunds of any kind. Again there are also no refunds for cancelling a reservation.
Renters are required to return our vehicles in the same condition as when they are given to them. We verify all Renter’s insurance coverages in advance and list that data on the rental agreement, or we require renters to purchase Ocean Drive Coverage through our commercial car rental insurance company. If a renter has U.S. car insurance, we require them to use it if it covers the rental. Their deposit acts as the deductible only which covers damages and loss of use costs.
Renters who do not reside in the U.S. or do not have insurance that extends to an exotic vehicle are able to purchase our commercial rental insurance. If the Renter accepts Ocean Drive insurance, the Renter is responsible for their deposit deductible only which covers damages and loss of use costs.
Ocean Drive requires all renters to report accidents to the police at the time of the accident. Failure to do so immediately will be an immediate forfeit of the deposit as well as a violation of Florida state law. Ocean Drive will require the Renter to pay in full for all damage repairs, a fee per day equal to 100% of the Ocean Drive website’s weekend daily rental rate for loss of use, diminished of value and any cancellation for existing future bookings that are cancelled as a result of our inability to determine when our vehicle will return, even if the Renter’s insurance will not pay the claim due to negligence by the renter.
In the event the Renter used Ocean Drive insurance and does not contact the police to make a report at the scene of the accident, Ocean Drive’s insurance coverage will not be extended to the Renter for the claim. The Renter will void their Ocean Drive insurance coverage and be 100% liable for all damage repairs, losses to third party vehicle or property arising from the accident AND all loss of use days while the vehicle is under repair and rendered unrentable by Ocean Drive to its customers. Furthermore, this includes any cancellations for existing future bookings that are cancelled as a result of our inability to determine when our vehicle will return. It is strictly prohibited to leave the scene of an accident that takes place in an Ocean Drive car without making a police report. All renters are required to contact Ocean Drive at 954-256-5760 directly after contacting the police and to also collect the insurance information and a picture of drivers license for any other vehicle involved and provide this information to Ocean Drive immediately via email to email@example.com.
Renters are required to return the vehicle with the same amount of fuel as when the vehicle is given to them. If the vehicle is returned with less fuel Ocean Drive will charge a refill fee of $75 in addition to the cost of the fuel. A receipt will be provided to the renter via email. You will be charged $8 per gallon to credit card on file.
Smoking is not permitted inside or near any vehicle in the Ocean Drive fleet. Smoke near or inside of the vehicle can cause smells that are permanent. Ocean Drive advises all smokers to stand at least 5 feet away from the vehicle with the windows up at all times to avoid the smell getting into the vehicle. This includes, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, vapor cigarettes and marijuana or other smelling substances. If an Ocean Drive employee determines smoking left a trace in the vehicle, an automatic fee of $5,000 will be charge to the credit card on file without exception. Ocean Drive will be forced to park the vehicle for 3+ days with windows down to ventilate the odor. DO NOT SMOKE IN OR AROUND OCEAN DRIVE CARS.
If an Ocean Drive vehicle is towed, it is the responsibility of the renter to advise Ocean Drive so that we may do a proper inspection to verify there was no damage to the vehicle. Ocean Drive has a relationship with all major towing companies in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Our VIN #s are on file. In the event we receive notice our vehicle was towed and the renter did not notify us, and automatic fee of $2,500 will be charged to their card in question. That renter will also not be permitted to rent from Ocean Drive in the future. The risk to the next renter if there is damage and they get in an accident as a result s too great.
