Revision date: August 26, 2020
Our Website ("Website") is provided solely to assist customers in gathering travel information, determining the availability of travel-related goods and services, making legitimate reservations or otherwise transacting business with travel suppliers, and for no other purposes. The terms "we," "us," "our," "CarRentals," and "CarRentals.com," refer to CarRentals.com, Inc., a Nevada corporation, and its subsidiaries and its corporate affiliates, including Expedia, Inc. and Travelscape, LLC, (collectively the "CarRentals.com Companies"). The term "you" refers to the customer visiting the Website and/or booking a reservation through us on this Website, or through our customer service agents.
CarRentals.com is committed to customer satisfaction, so if you have a problem or dispute, we will try to resolve your concerns. But if we are unsuccessful, you or we may pursue claims as explained in this section.
Arbitrations will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA Consumer Rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, except as provided in this section. If your total Claims seek less than $10,000, we will reimburse you for filing fees you pay to the AAA and will pay arbitrator’s fees.
Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The arbitrator will have authority to decide issues as to the scope of this arbitration agreement and the arbitrability of Claims. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claims to "CarRentals Legal: Arbitration Claim Manager," c/o Expedia, Inc., 1111 Expedia Group Way W., Seattle, WA 98119. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you have provided. The AAA’s rules and filing instructions are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
This arbitration agreement shall be governed by and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.

Additional terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select. Please read these additional terms and conditions carefully.

You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any travel supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier's rules and restrictions regarding availability, minimum age requirements, and use of rental cars and/or other products or services.

As a traveler shopping on our site, you have many options to help you find the perfect car rental. Our default sort order is based on the lowest total price. In cases where two cars have the same total price, the car that is listed first is determined randomly. In addition, the filter settings allow you to include or exclude various options to suit your travel needs. Additionally, we continually optimize our service to provide you the best experience. Accordingly, we may test different default sort order algorithms from time to time.

User access to all or part of this Website may be terminated or suspended at any time, without notice and for any reason.
Your payment is processed in the United States, when we process your payment. When the travel supplier processes your payment, it will be processed in the country in which the travel supplier is based.
CarRentals or the travel supplier may have to verify: (i) the validity of the payment card (through a charge of a nominal value that is either refunded within a few days or deducted from the final payment due to the travel supplier) and, (ii) the availability of funds on the payment card (to be confirmed by the bank issuing your credit card).
Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international or cross border transactions. For instance, if you are making a booking using a US-issued card with a non-US merchant, your bank may charge you a cross-border or international transaction fee. Furthermore, booking international travel may be considered an international transaction by your bank or card company, since we may pass your card details to an international travel supplier to be charged. In addition, some banks and card companies impose fees for currency conversion. For instance, if you are making a booking in a currency other than the currency of your credit card, your credit card company may convert the booking amount to the currency of your credit card and charge you a conversion fee. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
