Pricing & Payment

When is the payment due?

Payment for the rental itself will be charged on the day that your rental takes place. We require a valid credit card on file when you make your reservation, upon which a $400 damage hold will be placed. Any additional charges for gas or damages will be taken from your $400 damage hold after the rental is returned.


Why will a $400 hold be placed on my credit card?

We want to make sure the vehicle is returned in the same condition it was when you started your rental with us, and a $400 deposit ensures this. You can expect a clean, damage-free vehicle with a full tank of gas.


When will the $400 hold be released?

It depends on the type of card being used, but on average expect the $400 hold to be released between 7 and 30 days. If you’d like more information about this, contact your credit card company.


Can I use a debit card for the $400 security hold if I don't have a credit card?

No. Unfortunately the security hold will affect your bank account differently than it would a credit card. Please contact us at (802) 528-2200 with additional questions.


Do I need to refuel my rental before returning it?

Yes. All Saint Albans Rental Cars are handed off with a full tank of gas. If you drop off a vehicle without a full tank, you will be subject to a $150 flat refueling fee.


Is there a penalty for smoking or transporting a pet in the vehicle?

Yes. If any evidence of smoking or pets is found in the rental vehicle, you will be subject to a $300 cleaning fee based on the employee’s inspection.


How do the charges work?

Rentals are based on a 24 hour period. We understand traffic changes from day to day, and we offer a one-hour grace period to compensate. After that, Saint Albans Rental Car will charge you for an additional day’s rental.


Can I purchase insurance coverage from Saint Albans Rental Car?

No. We do not offer insurance coverage. You must provide proof of your own collision and full comprehensive insurance policy prior to a rental agreement being completed.

What data does St Albans Rental collect?

We want to ensure the best service and safety for all our members. To do so, we keep track of various data points to record vehicle and driver history to ensure that the vehicles are properly maintained and driven responsibly.
