Classics & Exotics

What kind of car can I rent?

You’ll find there’s a wide range of vehicles in the Classics & Exotics garage! You can choose by make and model, year, transmission, and many other options. Naturally, you have the choice of price range as well. Some vehicles may be equipped with a manual transmission. If you are not proficient with a manual, please do not attempt to book a car that is equipped with one. It is up to the owner to let the vehicle out if they do not feel you are able to drive it. There will be no refunds if this is the case.

What is the security deposit for?

Classics&Exotics requires a security deposit (minimum $500) before you may drive any car. If your payment card is a debit card, this amount will be deducted from your account; if it is a credit card, the amount will be pre-authorized. In each case, this will usually happen when you initially rent the car. However, if the trip is scheduled to start more than a week from the time you’ve paid for the rental, the security deposit will be charged 7 days prior to the trip starting; if the security deposit fails, your trip will be automatically cancelled. This deposit will be reversed 72 hours after you return the car in the condition that you first rented it. Depending on your bank and the means of payment, it may take up to 7 business days after we release the deposit for the funds to be available in your account. Credit cards will usually show a swifter return of the funds availability, as they will be a release of authorization.

How does pick up and drop off work?

Each owner will arrange pickup and drop off locations with the renter. Many owners are willing to drive a certain amount of miles to meet with the renter. Please specify any special request with the owners prior to booking.

 

Note: Some owners may charge a delivery fee of the vehicle outside of their driving range. 

 

What if there is an issue with the car?

Should there be a mechanical issue with the vehicle during a rental, Classics&Exotics provides the industry's most comprehensive roadside service on all vehicles during the rental period. This roadside assistance is included with every rental at no cost to the owner or renter.

Depending on the circumstances of the issue a refund may be offered to the renter.

Can I rent a car for an upcoming event?

Absolutely! Many of the vehicles listed on our site are also available for events and special occasions, such as weddings. Some owners may offer a discounted daily rate for an Event rental. Please contact the owner with any specific request prior to booking. 

How do I become an Approved Classics&Exotics Driver?

Only Classics&Exotics vetted and approved drivers are allowed to drive the cars. To be an approved driver, you must go through our sign up process and submit your driver's license information.  We check your driving history to ensure it meets our eligibility requirements and if it does, you can drive during any Classics&Exotics reservation.  Note that it may take up to 72 hours to become an approved driver. We strongly suggest that any co-drivers to create an account 72 hours before any planned rental. We cannot guarantee that the process will be completed in less time.

 

If your passengers are approved Classics&Exotixs drivers, then they can assist you with the drive. If not, they will have to remain as your radio station guru. You must still be the driver for the pickup and drop off of the car. It's your responsibility to confirm whether or not your passenger has been fully approved before letting them drive the car as well.

 

Please note that the current minimum age for any Driving rental is 30 years old.


Should a non-approved driver be allowed to drive the vehicle, the renter will become fully liable for any damage and fines that may occur.
