Ok, we're really, really trying not to be heartless here, but know this: When someone calls to cancel a rental, there's an 80% chance that they use the death-in-the-family excuse with us. (yes, we've measured.) We've heard it so much, that A) we can't believe that so many people would stoop so low, and B) We don't believe it anymore. We're very sorry if you actually have a death in the family, because there are a lot of people out there who cry wolf and have ruined it for you and made us cold, heartless automatons.
Our goal is twofold: To offer exotic car rentals that can't be found anywhere else; and to offer a level of service that far surpasses what clients in the northeast have come to expect from a traditional "car rental" company. We recognize that exotic cars are only half the rental equation -- without high-end service, particularly in a place like New York City, clients are not getting their money's worth. Gotham Dream Cars aims to offer the same level of service for clients renting a supercar that they would expect when buying a supercar.
–BE RESPECTFUL. We applaud all the successful young renters that have been fortunate enough to make a few bucks and now want to enjoy some R & R. Two thumbs up! However, there are many restrictions set up by insurance companies and the likes that we have to follow. They simply do not care how much money you have in your pocket today or what some Black Listed 3rd party brokerage website is doing.
Think about the fuel policy that will be the most cost-effective for you. For example, full-empty policies mean that you’ll have to pay for a full tank of petrol, probably at an inflated price, at the rental desk then return the car empty. Instead, look for car hire firms that allow you to return the car with the same amount of petrol it had when you picked it up. On TravelSupermarket, you can filter your results by fuel policy type.
David's car is awesome and he is great to rent from! The entire transaction was super slick, and he was completely flexible with us. I was picked up at SFO and driven to a nearby parking lot, where David gave me a thorough walk through of the car. The car performed flawlessly and definitely turned heads wherever we went! I would definitely recommend this rental and hope for the opportunity to rent from David again in the future.
Car hire excess insurance is a must for car rental – it is designed to lower the expensive excess you would have to pay towards the cost of repairs if you had an accident. However, you can end up paying over the odds for a policy at the rental desk when compared to buying a standalone policy in advance. Book with our partner, iCarhireinsurance, and save up to 65%.
Depending on which part of the car is damaged – for example, the body work – you’ll likely have to pay an excess amount (the first part of any insurance claim that the claimant is usually liable to pay). However, if you damage the windscreen or the roof (both of which are not included in standard Collision Damage Waiver insurance), you’ll likely have to pay towards repairs.
Please understand that there are no exceptions to this cancellation policy. We don't mean to sound heartless, but you would be amazed at the number of last-minute deaths in the family, serious illnesses, sick pets, sick mother-in-laws, rabid dogs, and falling skies that people tell us about. (One guy's father has died three times in the past year. Bad karma.)
