What are the taxes on top on the all inclusive pricing? Say for NYC?

It was my understanding that the price already includes taxes

I wouldn't think so. Taxes vary by state and city. If it's after taxes that's a game changer.

Taxes are not included. You can see the taxes by checking out . Nothing will happen until you hit SUBMIT.

Oh well, I thought that since they ask you for your zip code before showing prices they could effectively show show after everything pricing

Looks interesting. A few items to be aware of:
1. They charge $199 for pickup at the end of the term, or you have to return it to their lot (not crazy, just odd given that they push the hassle-free delivery-included concept)
2. The liability limit is $300k. While that may cover state limits, itís worth thinking about whether youíre comfortable with any risk above that.
3. Youíre responsible for their cost to fix any nicks sand scratches, and I canít imagine any cc is going to cover this. (Maybe Amex premium, but I assume they have a max length?)

4. You can't drive in Canada (or mexico)

Is there any link to see their lot locations for return?
Also no fee if you continue with a new vehicle

Canada is a BIG minus. Not sure why they don't allow it.

What happens if you drive there? Are they tracking the car?

FYI A little while ago I looked into this (ended up purchasing) and from what I recall, thereís another similar service at drivego.com Itís for three years so basically a lease, but you use their insurance and they cover maintenance. A couple months ago the prices there were significantly less than what I could find for other leases, but general prices may have gone down.

Yes. Screwed up startup. Their word is not a word. I didn't really NEEDED the car, was just trying a certain vehicle.
