A car rental agreement is essentially a document, which an individual completes and signs at the point of renting a car. Additionally, it is a legal agreement that stipulates and defines the relationship between a car rental company and the end-user, which serves to protect the two parties involved. All the terms and conditions of a rental car are usually well defined and extend until the rental duration is exceeded.

A well-designed car rental agreement should contain the following information:

  • The full names of all the parties involved in the car rental agreement.
  • The full addresses of all the parties involved in the car rental agreement.
  • Information about the rental car.
  • Duration of rent.
  • Mileage limit for driving the car.
  • Rental price.
  • Insurance.
  • Other terms and conditions.
