Can I get the car delivered at 8am or 11pm?
Yes. Our goal is complete customer satisfaction and, unlike our competitors, we deliver free to all Strip properties and the greater part of Los Angeles and Henderson area. All deliveries simply need to be made in advance. We also require a 1-hour grace period from required delivery and pickup time in case of emergencies. Give us a shout – we’ll do our best to work around your schedule.
Why is there a 1 hour delivery window?
We have a 1-hour window for deliveries because, unfortunately, we cannot control traffic, flat tires, etc., and we’ve learned to leave more time rather than less. We always aim to get there at the beginning of your delivery window, so we’ll do our best.
Do you offer hourly rentals?
Yes. We’ve run the numbers and 6 hours is the sweet spot for us to prep, deliver and pickup the vehicles. Overhead is too high to be worthwhile for either of us for less than 6 hours. If that’s even too long, then our Diplomat Dream Car Tour is just what your wallet prescribed. Drive four exotic cars through Red Rock Canyon for $799.
Ok, then I only want it for one day on the weekend. Can I do that?
Yes. Diplomat Exotic Car Rentals only requires a 6-hour minimum. However, there are some perks to keeping the car longer, like free gas! Yes, that’s correct. The gas is on us for 24-hour-or-more rentals. You will also receive more free mileage and a discount for three or more days.
Does my own insurance cover the rental of a Ferrari?
More than likely, but we will do all the investigating on your behalf. We will get your insurance information and contact them directly.
I want to rent for my prom. I’m under 21, but my uncle/father/mother/sister/cat is going to rent it for me. I promise I won’t be driving the Ferrari. Is that OK?
Unfortunately, we’ve had bad experiences in the past with underage drivers getting their hands on our exotics after their relative rented the vehicle to ‘drive them’ to prom. So we don’t do any prom rentals, full stop. However, if you’re a parent and want to arrange to rent one of our luxury sedans to be ‘chauffeur’ for the night, we’re happy to accommodate – just make sure that YOU make the call!
How many miles do I get with my rental?
All our rentals include 150 miles per rental day. After that, mileage rates differ depending on the vehicle – check out the car information pages for specifics. If you go over your included mileage on a rental, there is an additional $1.50-$3.50/mile surcharge on top of the standard mileage rate. For example: You rent the Lamborghini Gallardo for one day. The first 150 miles you drive are included in the price of the rental. Anything over 150 miles costs you $3.50/mile. All mileage charges are billed out of your security deposit.
Why do I have to leave a security deposit?
Due to the extremely high cost of the vehicles we offer, it is our policy to take a refundable security deposit for all our rentals and Dream Car Tour participants. The deposits range from $500 – $2,500 depending on the vehicle and level of insurance you carry. Rest assured, this is refunded in full once the vehicle has been returned to us and thoroughly inspected. This usually takes 3-5 business days after the end of your rental. If there are any additional mileage charges or minor damages, they are billed from your deposit and the balance is refunded back onto your credit card.
But I have insurance. Why would you bill me for damage?
We come across a lot of minor scuffs and scrapes on our cars when they go out on rentals – sometimes customers scrape a wheel, scratch a front bumper or bubble a tire (to name but three). These repairs are quick and relatively inexpensive to make and are billed from the security deposit in order to minimize the amount of time the car is off the road. Once your invoice has been settled, you can of course make a claim to your insurance company to be reimbursed for any charges.
If I pay cash, do I still have to pay sales tax?
How much tax do I have to pay?
Uncle Sam and his distant cousins want their cut and we don’t want you to have sticker shock! 12% government fee. 8.25% sales tax. 4% license recovery fee.
