FAQ's

  • How can I rent one of your luxury cars ?
    The first step to getting yourself into one of our vehicles is to submit a quick quote request or call us at 516-497-8735 to speak with an account manager. Once you've received your quote we will send you the necessary reservation forms to reserve the vehicle and get everything set up for you. We require proof of valid driver license and valid full coverage vehicle insurance, as well as an additional 50% deposit depending on the dates, in order to reserve a vehicle.
  • Does A1 Exotics Require a security deposit? Why?
    Exotic Car Rentals can be a risky business when dealing with $75,000-$500,000 vehicles. At A1 Exotics, our security deposits are a flat $1,000-$5,000 for both Miami and NYC locations. Once you have returned the vehicle you will receive your deposit back immediately (if left in cash) or within 3 to 5 business days (if left as a hold on your credit card) Please note, there have been scenarios where security deposits have taken longer to refund then 3 to 5 business days due to holidays or the receiving banks policy. Security deposits are held for incidentals that cannot be billed through insurance, such as a crack in a windshield, a scuff on a wheel, dent in a door, etc. Trust us, you donโ€™t want an increase in your insurance premium anyway, it would cost you more in the long run than holding a small repair amount from your security deposit.
  • Can I rent a car for one day on a weekend?
    We receive the highest amount of inquiries on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Because we have a limited amount of cars on our fleet, if we put the car out for one day to you on a weekend, weโ€™ll likely end up turning down a two or three day rental. One of the largest issues A1 Exotics has run into with our continued growth as a company is having more clients than cars. As Iโ€™m sure you know, these rentals are investments for us and our overall goal (along with outstanding customer service) is to ensure we are getting the maximum return on investment on a month to month basis. For this reason, we enforce strict two day minimum policies on normal weekends and 3 day minimum policies on holiday weekends (Memorial Weekend, July 4th, New Yearsโ€ฆto name a few). We know that many clients are looking to take advantage of this experience on an hourly or daily basis which is why we usually entertain these sorts of rentals on a Monday to Thursday basis. On the bright side, we do offer exceptions to this rule. If youโ€™re reading this on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday and we have inventory that has not fulfilled our 2 or 3 day weekend requirement we would be more than happy to fulfill a one day rental so long as no one has reserved that car in advance.
  • Can I rent a luxury/exotic car on an hourly basis?
    Yes! A1 Exotics is the only company in Miami & New York offering hourly rentals .
  • Does my insurance cover the rental of my Lamborghini?
    If you carry a full coverage driver insurance policy (comp, collision and liability) your insurance automatically covers you when you rent an exotic or luxury car from A1 Exotics. However, we will ask for a copy of your driver license and insurance so we can verify as some smaller insurance companies do not offer transferable coverage limits to rental vehicles. Major companies such as State Farm, Geico, Progressive, Allstate etc will almost always transfer to rental vehicles.
  • Would you bill for damages if I have my own insurance?
    Security Deposits are held for minor scrapes or scuffs on our vehicles that are fixes too small to be billed through insurance. Because of this, we usually choose to bill directly from your security deposit. We bill $100 for scuffed wheels (per wheel) and $300 for major dings/scratches on the body (per ding/scratch). Once the charges are settled you will still be able to file a claim through your insurance and receive money back for any charges.
  • How many miles can one consume with a rental?
    Our mileage offers vary based on your location. We offer a flex unlimited mileage policy if the vehicle is staying within Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties at our South Florida location. It's important to acknowledge at our Miami location we do however expect to be notified if you plan on driving a vehicle 200 or more miles in a day, especially if given a discounted rate as our vehicles depreciate quickly and we need to take that into account when considering if a rental is worth it or not. As for our New York location, we offer 125 free miles per day. Any additional miles will be subject to additional charges on top of your principal amount ($12/mi for higher end vehicles, $10/mi for lower end vehicles.) Feel free to discuss with an account manager if you have any questions/concerns regarding mileage charges.
  • What are the delivery charges?
    We offer complimentary delivery and pickup within Miami Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Delivery charges are on a case by case basis out of our NYC location. Please note, we often offer a 2 hour delivery window on weekends as we are busier on weekends. NYC delivery charges range based on distance.
  • How old do I have to be to rent a car from A1 Exotics?
    We require our renters to be a minimum age of 21 years or older, with full drivers license and insurance coverage.
  • Driving While Under the Influence or Intoxicated:
    Please do not drink and drive while in the vehicles. These vehicles are investments, A1 Exotics reserves the right to forfeit any reservations or de-activate ignitions in the event we feel you are putting the car or yourself in danger. We understand for some of you, it's your first time in one of these types of vehicles and rightfully so, you want to show it off. This can be done responsibly without putting the car and yourself at risk, any client observed driving while under the influence will immediately forfeit the rental and the entire rental balance.
