Import / Export Fee:

 - We do not accept Cash or Traveler’s Checks, Stored Value/Pre-paid cards or gift cards
 - The security deposit is not charged on the customer’s credit card on pick-up, but rather the amount is ‘held’ in the form of an authorization; Upon return, provided that the rental vehicle is returned clean inside, undamaged and on time with any fines paid this ‘hold’ is removed.

Flex Rates:
Elmonte's Daily Rental Rates are know as 'Flex Rates' . These give you the very best available price for the motorhome you want to rent. If you book early and there are plenty of motorhomes available, you will pay a much lower price. If you book closer to departure date or book for a high demand period then the rate will be higher. This is a similar system to that used by airlines.

No mileage is included in the Flex rates. Choose from the available mileage options above. Once booked and confirmed, should you need to change, the rate will be re-calculated using the most current Flex rate and compared to the existing flex rate. The higher rate will prevai. Changing party size or adding pre-paid items does not consitute a change. Flex rate valid for maximum 35 days and on day 36 a new Flex rate will apply.
