Confirmation of your reservation
When you make a reservation, please note that we may ask for a credit/debit card number in order to GUARANTEE availability of your requested vehicle. We do NOT overbook our vehicles in order to reach full utility. In certain cases, a deposit is also required. We will contact you via the telephone and/or e-mail in order to request a deposit and/or credit/debit card number in order to guarantee availability.

Cargo Van Rentals

The van you are renting is a commercial vehicle which has driving and parking restrictions: it may not be driven on parkways or roads that do not allow commercial traffic; parking is restricted on some streets.

These are the insurance choices you will need to decide on that will affect the amount of money authorized on your credit/debit card. Please contact us if you would like further information.

We have two locations in New York City to serve you. 315 West 96th street is located on the Upper West Side and is easily accessible with the 1, 2 and 3 subway lines. If you desire to taxi in New York to our location, the fare should be between $5 and $8 from most New York hotels. If you desire to use our 181st street location (located at 506 West 181st street), you will find this in the Washington Heights area of New York City.

Debit cards

Aamcar Discount Car Rental gladly accepts debit cards to rent a car in NY. We are also proud that we are one of the few companies that continue to support debit card car rentals. For Full size cars and SUV rentals, a credit card is required.

Ask us about the length and amount of the “hold” that will be placed on your account at time of pick up. You should be aware that when using a debit card to rent a car, the sum taken by us as a “deposit” will not be “available” in your account for a few days after the return of the car.

Posted rates at our 181st location are valid for customers who have their own insurance coverage. Please contact us if you are using a debit card at this location.

Credit authorization amount
When you rent a car in New York, authorizations vary. Please ask your reservation agent how much you will need to have available for your particular rental.

Gas / refueling

Our rental rates do not include the cost of gasoline. We usually start you out with a full tank of gas. In order to maintain our rates in New York, we request that customers refill prior to their return. You should be aware that a refueling cost will apply if the vehicle is returned with less gas than you started out.

Please refuel as much as possible before you return the vehicle as the current refueling rate is $7.50 per gallon.

Personal management override
In certain circumstances, “policies” do not make sense. In those cases, the General manager/owner is available to see what can be done, even override certain policies.

Optional Charges and Coverage

As of February 24th 2003, the New York state legislature has repealed the $100.00 cap on a renters financial responsibility for damage or loss to the rental vehicle. From that day on, a renter will be financially responsible for all damage or loss incurred while the vehicle is in their custody and control, similar to other states. For an additional charge, there will be optional vehicle protection available to cover the renters financial responsibility for damage or loss to the rental vehicle. This coverage, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is optional, and may be declined. You are advised to carefully consider whether to purchase this protection if you have rental vehicle collision coverage provided by your credit card or automobile insurance policy.
