Import / Export Fee:
We try to confirm all One-way requests. However, there are times when the direction of the drop or time of year does not make sense in terms of fleet utilization. Therefore, El Monte RV will consider accepting a specific one-way request for the standard one-way fee PLUS up to an additional $2,000 to import or export the motor home to or from the location needed.

- We do not accept Cash or Travelers 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 on 'hold'. Upon return provided that the rental vehicle is returned clean inside, undamaged and on time 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.
