I'M A FOREIGN DRIVER. WILL MY INSURANCE COVER ME IN THE UNITED STATES?  

We're sorry, we are not insurance experts and car insurance coverage varies so much around the world and foreign insurance in some cases are often not valid outside of the renter’s home country, the European Union, etc. or the renter has different minimum requirements than the state of North Carolina. International and Canadian drivers must contact us at hello@weddingcars.rent to arrange alternative insurance prior to your reservation.

WHY DO YOU ASK FOR PROOF OF MY AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE POLICY? 

It is required by state law for every driver to have adequate car insurance coverage. Please review the North Carolina State Law regarding the minimum insurance requirements.

If your personal car insurance does not apply, please contact us at hello@weddingcars.rent to arrange alternative insurance prior to your reservation.

I DON'T HAVE AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE BUT I THINK I'M COVERED THROUGH MY CREDIT CARD? IF NOT, CAN YOU PROVIDE COVERAGE? 

We are sorry but Credit card companies only offer secondary policies that only cover damage to your rental car, not general liability insurance, personal injury, etc., and some cars are excluded from coverage which may include, classics, vintage, cars older than 10 years, exotics, etc. Please contact us at hello@weddingcars.rent to arrange alternative insurance prior to your reservation.

DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION POLICY? 

Yes, please give us at least 2 weeks prior notice if you have to cancel your reservation. Cancellations that are less than two weeks time are non-refundable since in most cases we have turned down several interested parties for the same car that is now not able to be rented. No refunds will be given if the cars are returned early or at the time of the rental delivery that your driver's license is not valid, proof of insurance is expired or you cannot drive a manual car, etc.)

IS IT OK TO LEAVE THE CAR UNATTENDED? 

Yes, just remember to please take the key and lock the car. 

HOW MUCH ROOM IS IN THE TRUNK? 

Trunk space is very limited in all of the cars. The Jaguar as the largest trunk space and the 1957 Speedster has the least amount of storage room. There’s enough room for a small luggage carry on and a small bag in the cars. 

WHAT'S THE CHARGE IF I DON'T RETURN THE CAR WITH A FULL TANK OF GAS? 

We charge $10 fee plus the cost of gas to fill the tank. This extra fee covers our time and effort to fill the tank.
