FEES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CUSTOMER
The Customer is required to pay all fees and costs incurred when due, including, without limitation, driving record/insurance verification fees, driving charges (including but not limited to mileage overage and surcharge and/or toll fees), sales and other taxes and levies, and other costs and fees. Customers are billed for amounts due via credit or debit card or other means as established by Island Rides. Any Customer account which is past due will be suspended; however, any reservations booked in advance shall still be charged to the Customer if not timely cancelled by the Customer. If payment of any amount due is rejected by the credit or debit card provided by the Customer, the use of Island Rides’ services may be suspended. Customers are responsible for providing and maintaining current credit card or debit card information on file with Island Rides. Ongoing issues with credit or debit card billings may result in termination of rental. Under no circumstances will Island Rides be responsible for any overdraft or other fees charged by a Customer’s credit card company or bank. For past due accounts, Island Rides may also change when payment is due and/or terminate the Customer’s account. In addition, Island Rides may utilize third parties to collect amounts owed to Island Rides by a Customer and the Customer will also be responsible for any collection or similar fees associated with these collection activities.

Customers who do not have a driver’s license from the jurisdiction in which they reside must comply with the licensing requirements of such jurisdiction for driving in that jurisdiction. In addition, Island Rides may at any time require Customers to demonstrate compliance with the licensing laws of their jurisdiction of residence and/or impose further policies regarding the obligation to be licensed in their jurisdiction of residence. Island Rides reserves the right to request additional information, such as a copy of a passport or proof of address at any time. Because driving a Vehicle requires maintaining a good driving record, Island Rides may, from time to time, check Customers’ driving records and reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate any Customer who does not meet Island Rides’ eligibility requirements. If the Customer’s license is suspended or revoked or becomes invalid, if the Customer has any further endorsements or accidents on their driving record, or if the Customer is convicted of or receives a citation for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, dangerous or reckless driving or exceeding the relevant speed limit, the Customer agrees to report such suspension, revocation, changes, conviction or citation to Island Rides promptly. Failure to notify Island Rides of any such events may lead to the Customer not being covered by Island Rides’ liability protection when driving a Vehicle and/or termination of rental.
Late Fees. If you return the Vehicle later than the end reservation time, you will be charged per hour at the hourly usage rate of the Vehicle unless you have reported the Vehicle as stolen. You must click “End Rental” in the Island Rides app upon returning the Vehicle if using our self-service feature. Failure to do so may result in late fees. Subject to Vehicle availability, you may be able to extend your reservation end time to avoid a late fee. You will be charged for the additional time if you choose to extend your reservation.
If a Vehicle is more than 12 hours overdue, and the Island Rides rental period has not been extended with all fees paid, then you must return and surrender the Vehicle immediately.
Cleaning Fee. You are to return the Vehicle in a clean condition for others to use. If found otherwise (ex. mud, excessive dirt, odor or residue from smoking, pet hairs, etc.) you will be charged a cleaning fee to recondition the Vehicle, plus applicable taxes.

Specialty vehicles (such as 12/5 passenger vans) may require non-refundable deposits at booking. Failing to cancel at least 24 hours before your reservation date, or failing to show, will result in a charge of your full reservation amount to your credit card. Taxes may apply.
Tracking Devices. We use GPS and diagnostic tracking devices to track or locate cars as necessary, car’s condition, performance and operation, track fuel consumption, distance travelled, location and other information We may transmit such information to us, our third-party providers and/or the car manufacturer.
Repossession. Island Rides, the Vehicle owner and/or hired agent of Island Rides or of the Vehicle owner may repossess any Vehicle rented without demand, at the renter’s expense, if the Vehicle is not returned by the end of the reservation, is found illegally parked or apparently abandoned, or is used in violation of applicable law or this Agreement.
DAMAGES AND INSURANCE
Damages Generally: A Customer is responsible for any and all damage, or theft, that occurs to a Vehicle while in the Customer’s possession or control (including the entire time the Vehicle is reserved under the Customer’s account), even if damage is weather-related, caused by a third party or arises from similar causes, and is responsible for the full value of any damages or injuries caused to third parties or their property. Such damages include, without limitation, the repair costs (estimated or actual) for the Vehicle and third-party property, injuries to third parties, costs associated with the recovery or transportation of Vehicles, and the loss of use of Vehicles or third party property.
You understand that third parties may own the Vehicles offered through the Services. Each owner is responsible for complying with all legal requirements (including ensuring the Vehicle is registered and insured) and maintaining their Vehicle(s) in safe and roadworthy condition. Customer must complete inspection of Vehicle before use; If you find damage on your initial inspection and fail to report it, Island Rides may assume that the damage occurred during your rental period. If, after your initial inspection, you believe that the Vehicle is not safe to drive, please do not use the Vehicle; in that event, please contact the Island Rides team immediately at 239-223-6037.
You must report all accidents or incidents of theft and vandalism to us and the police as soon as you discover them.
You must return the Vehicle to the designated return area, on the date and time specific in your reservation, and in the same condition that you received it, except for ordinary wear. If the Vehicle is returned after closing hours, you remain responsible for the safety of, and any damage to, or loss of, the Vehicle until we inspect it upon our next opening for business. Service to the Vehicle or replacement parts or accessories during the rental must have our prior approval. You must check and maintain all fluid levels.
THIRD PARTY LIABILITY
You are responsible for all damage or loss you cause to others. You agree to provide auto liability, collision and comprehensive insurance covering you, us and the Vehicle. Where state law requires us to provide auto liability insurance, or if you have no auto liability insurance, we provide auto liability insurance that is secondary to any other valid and collective insurance whether primary, secondary, excess or contingent. The policy provides bodily injury and property damage liability coverage with limits no higher than minimum levels prescribed by the vehicular financial responsibility laws of the state whose laws apply to the loss. You and we reject PIP, medical payments, no-fault and uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, where permitted by law. The policy is void if you violate the terms of this Contract, or if you fail to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by us or our insurer.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and/or Tire and Windshield Waiver (TWW) is offered at the time of rental for an additional daily charge. If the customer accepts CDW, Island Rides waives or reduces the customer’s responsibility for loss of, or damage to, the rental vehicle (excluding damage to tires, glass, loss of keys, manuals, and/or other equipment) subject to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement and applicable laws. If the customer accepts TWW, Island Rides waives or reduces the customer’s responsibility for loss of, or damage to, the tires or glass subject to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement and applicable laws.
These products are not insurance. The purchase of a Protection Product is optional and not required to rent a car. The protection provided by a Protection Product may duplicate the customer’s existing coverage. Island Rides is not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of the customer’s existing coverage; therefore, the customer should examine his or her credit card protections, automobile insurance policies or other sources of coverage that may duplicate the protection provided by Protection Products. Customer acknowledges receipt and understanding of the document “Facts versus Fiction – Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)” which is provided at the time of the rental and can be found at IslandRides.rent under “Frequently Asked Questions.”

You agree to indemnify us, defend us and hold us harmless from all claims, liability, costs and attorney fees we incur resulting from, or arising out of, this reservation and your use of the Vehicle. We make no warranties, express, implied or apparent, regarding the Vehicle, no warranty of merchantability and no warranty that the Vehicle is fit for a particular purpose.
You release us, our agents and employees from all claims for loss of, or damage to, your personal property (including a vehicle) or that of any other person, that we received, handled or stored, or that was left or carried in or on the Vehicle or in any service vehicle or in our offices, whether or not the loss or damage was caused by our negligence or was otherwise our responsibility.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Pre-Dispute Resolution Procedure. Before asserting a claim in any proceeding (including in an individual arbitration or in a small claims proceeding), you and Island Rides agree that we shall give the other party written notice of the claim to be asserted 30 days before initiating a proceeding and make a reasonable good faith effort to resolve the claim. If you are intending to assert a claim against Island Rides, you must send the written notice of the claim to Island Rides Legal 16190 Lee Road, Unit 190, Fort Myers, FL 33912. If Island Rides is intending to assert a claim against you, we will send the written notice of the claim to you at your address appearing in our records. NO SETTLEMENT DEMAND OR SETTLEMENT OFFER — USED IN THIS PRE-DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS MAY BE — USED IN ANY PROCEEDING, INCLUDING AS EVIDENCE OR AS AN ADMISSION OF ANY LIABILITY OR DAMAGES (OR LACK THEREOF).
Agreement to Arbitrate. Except as otherwise provided in this dispute resolution provision, in the event of a dispute that cannot be resolved informally through the pre-dispute resolution procedure, you and Island Rides agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims, including the interpretation and scope of this provision, and the arbitrability of the dispute or claim.BY AGREEING TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AND ISLAND RIDES AGREE TO EACH UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR COURT.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AND ISLAND RIDES AGREE THAT ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR Island Rides WILL BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND WILL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class, representative, or private attorney general proceeding. You and Island Rides agree to seek only such relief-whether in the form of damages, an injunction, or other non-monetary relief-as is necessary to resolve any individual injury that either you or Island Rides have suffered or may suffer. In particular, if either you or Island Rides seek non-monetary relief, such relief must be individualized and may not affect individuals or entities other than you or Island Rides. This requirement that claims be brought in binding arbitration only in an individual capacity and not as a representative, private attorney general, or class Customer (“Class Action Waiver”) is non-severable. If the Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this dispute resolution provision shall be null and void.
Applicable Law and Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). As modified by this Contract, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s rules for commercial arbitration and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the procedures for consumer-related disputes. For more information on AAA, its rules and procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
Hearings and Decisions. If you are an individual, arbitrations will proceed at a location that the arbitrator selects in the county of your primary residence unless you and Island Rides agree otherwise. If you are not an individual person (but are instead, for instance, a partnership, corporation, or other form of entity or non-natural person) (hereafter “Entity Customer”), arbitrations shall proceed at a location that the arbitrator selects unless you and Island Rides agree otherwise.
Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Further, an arbitrator’s award and any judgment confirming it shall apply only to that specific case and cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself.
Fees and Costs. If you are an individual (and not an entity Customer), in the event that (1) your claim is less than $10,000, and (2) you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Island Rides will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation. Island Rides also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration. However, Island Rides will not pay your share of the arbitration fees if the arbitrator finds that either your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, as measured by the standards of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b).
Small Claims, Personal Injury Claims and Vehicle Damage or Loss Claims. The following disputes and claims are exempt from Sections 9.2-9.7: (a) disputes and claims that are within the scope of a small claims court’s authority; (b) disputes and claims regarding personal injury and/or damage to or loss of a vehicle related to your Island Rides reservation; and (c) if you are an Entity Customer, disputes over the validity of any party’s intellectual property rights.
Conflicts. In the event of any conflict between this dispute resolution provision and any other dispute resolution provision in any other agreement between you and Island Rides, the dispute resolution provision in this Contract shall govern.
Modification of this Provision. Notwithstanding any provision in these this Contract to the contrary, we agree that if Island Rides makes any material change to this arbitration provision, including the deletion of this provision, that change will not apply to any dispute that you had already provided Island Rides notice of in writing.
