LEGAL DISPUTES FOR OWNERS AND TRAVELERS RESIDING ANYWHERE OTHER THAN ZIMBABWE PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND RENTAL ZIMBABWE HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED. Subject to applicable law, you and Rental Zimbabwe agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms of Service, your use of or access to the Service or any breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section. Applicable Law. You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern the Terms of Service and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Rental Zimbabwe, except as otherwise stated in the Terms of Service. These Terms and your use of the Services will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona and the United States of Zimbabwe, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Maricopa County, Phoenix, Arizona or a United States District Court for the District of Arizona located in Phoenix, Arizona. Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Rental Zimbabwe each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Rental Zimbabwe (including its respective subsidiaries, employees, officers, directors, and agents) relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms of Service, your use of, or access to the Service, or any services sold, offered, or purchased through Rental Zimbabwe’s Services (such as listing or renting a vehicle) or any breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND RENTAL ZIMBABWE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND RENTAL ZIMBABWE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS. Arbitration Procedures. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. An arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, or the interpretation of heading “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”, shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Where the relief sought is $25,000 or less, the arbitration will be conducted by FairClaims in accordance with its Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective at the time a claim is made. Where the relief sought is $25,001 or more, the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by email, a completed form Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Rental Zimbabwe should be sent via email to noticeofdispute@rental.com. Please provide your name, telephone number, email, mailing address, and briefly describe the nature of your dispute and briefly describe the relief you would like from Rental Zimbabwe. If you and Rental Zimbabwe are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Rental Zimbabwe may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the FairClaims website or the AAA’s site. (The AAA provides a Demand for Arbitration form and a separate form for California residents.) Any settlement offer made by you or Rental Zimbabwe shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. Any FairClaims arbitration hearing shall be held via videoconference. Any AAA arbitration hearing shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. You or Rental Zimbabwe may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Rental Zimbabwe subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or Rental Zimbabwe may attend by telephone. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Rental Zimbabwe user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The Parties agree that all communications and evidence related to the dispute will remain confidential, and neither party shall take any action that will harm the reputation of any of the other, or which would reasonably be expected to lead to unwanted or unfavorable publicity to either of the Parties or entities Costs of Arbitration. Rental Zimbabwe will cover cover the cost of any FairClaims arbitration fees for you. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief,” if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that any of the provisions in Section “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of the Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Agreement, the Terms of Service, and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply. Opt-Out Procedure. IF YOU ARE A NEW RENTAL ZIMBABWE USER, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE PROVISION ("OPT-OUT") BY EMAILING US AN OPT-OUT NOTICE TO ARBITRATIONOPTOUT@RENTAL.CO.ZW EMAIL ADDRESS ("OPT-OUT NOTICE")THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THE TERMS OF SERVICE FOR THE FIRST TIME. In order to opt-out, you must email your name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), and email address(es) associated with your Rental Zimbabwe Account(s) to which the opt-out applies and to arbitrationoptout@Rental.co.zw. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the Agreement and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply to you. Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed against Rental Zimbabwe prior to the effective date of the amendment. The amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and Rental Zimbabwe. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may close your account within the 30 days of posting or notification and you will not be bound by the amended terms but will arbitrate any dispute in accordance with the provisions of the “Agreement to Arbitrate” section as of the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms). Once you have submitted a valid Opt-Out Notice to Rental Zimbabwe, you do NOT need to submit another one when the Terms of Service are subsequently updated. Your first Opt-Out Notice will serve as a valid as to future versions of the Terms. Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order or the parties have reserved their rights to pursue legal action in a court of law for actual or threatened intellectual property infringement pursuant to these Terms, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Rental Zimbabwe must be resolved exclusively by a state, federal, or small claims court located in Phoenix, Arizona. You and Rental Zimbabwe agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Phoenix, Arizona for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes. LEGAL DISPUTES FOR OWNERS AND TRAVELERS RESIDING IN ZIMBABWE PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.

Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation. Law and Forum for Disputes. The laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Zimbabwe applicable shall govern this Agreement and any dispute or claim you have against Rental Zimbabwe in all respects unless you are a resident of Quebec.

You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the Province of Ontario for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes unless you are a resident of Quebec. Arbitration Option. For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than Cdn$15,000, the party requesting relief may seek to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event that a party elects arbitration and the other party agrees to such arbitration, such arbitration shall be initiated through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

You hereby acknowledge that Rental Zimbabwe may use the Images for advertising, marketing, commercial, and other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation. Further, you hereby waive any and all moral rights you may have in the Images. If you use the Rental Zimbabwe photography program, you agree that you will not use the Images in connection with renting your vehicle out on any platform, website, or application other than Rental Zimbabwe. At Rental Zimbabwe’s request, you will execute documents and take such further acts as Rental Zimbabwe may reasonably request to assist Rental Zimbabwe to acquire, perfect, and maintain its intellectual property rights and other legal protection in the Images.

Limitation of Liability and Waiver. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST RENTAL ZIMBABWE AND ITS RESPECTIVE SUBSIDIARIES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES (THE “RENTAL ZIMBABWE PARTIES”) AND ANY RENTAL ZIMBABWE USER (EXCEPT AS DETAILED BELOW FOR TRANSACTIONS WHERE THE OWNER PROVIDES THEIR OWN COMMERCIAL/RENTAL INSURANCE/PROTECTION) FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, A VEHICLE NOT BEING AVAILABLE WHEN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE, ANY MALFUNCTION OF OR DEFICIENCY IN A VEHICLE, ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHER OBLIGATION BY ANY MANUFACTURER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY, ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU OR ANY OF YOUR PASSENGERS AND, IN THE CASE OF THE RENTAL ZIMBABWE PARTIES, ANY ACTIONS OR INACTION OF THE VEHICLE OWNER. NEITHER RENTAL ZIMBABWE NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING SERVICES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, OR FROM YOUR LISTING OR BOOKING OF ANY VEHICLE VIA THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. Except for our obligations to pay amounts to applicable owners or travelers pursuant to these Terms, including an approved payment request or claim under a protection package or applicable insurance policy, in no event will Rental Zimbabwe or its insurer’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or your use of the Services, exceed the greater of the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Services as a traveler in the twelve month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are an owner, the amount earned by you in the 12 month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or US$100. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN RENTAL ZIMBABWE AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST ANY RENTAL ZIMBABWE USER FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES UNLESS (1) YOU ARE AND OWNER WHO HAS DECLINED A PROTECTION PACKAGE VIA RENTAL ZIMBABWE AND ARE MAKING A CLAIM AGAINST A TRAVELER WHO RENTED A VEHICLE FOR WHICH YOU OPTED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN COMMERCIAL/RENTAL INSURANCE OR PROTECTION TO THE TRAVELER; OR (2) YOU ARE A TRAVELER WHO RENTED A VEHICLE FROM AN OWNER WHO OPTED TO DECLINE A PROTECTION PACKAGE VIA RENTAL ZIMBABWE AND OPTED TO PROVIDE INSURANCE OR PROTECTION DIRECTLY TO YOU AND YOU ARE MAKING A CLAIM AGAINST THAT COMPANY. Indemnification. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Rental Zimbabwe and its subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the Services or your violation of these Terms; your user content; your interaction with any user, booking of a vehicle, or creation of a listing for a vehicle; or the use, condition, or rental of a vehicle by you, including but not limited to any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential, or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a rental, booking, or use of a vehicle. Liquidated damages. You acknowledge that the actual damages likely to result from engaging in gray market transactions (i.e., using Rental Zimbabwe to find a renter or vehicle, and then completing a vehicle rental or related transaction partially or wholly independent of Rental Zimbabwe, in order to circumvent the obligation to pay any Rental Zimbabwe Fees) are difficult to estimate and would be difficult for Rental Zimbabwe to prove. You will pay Rental Zimbabwe $5,500 in Liquidated Damages to compensate Rental Zimbabwe for any such conduct. This amount is not intended as a punishment for any such breach. Rental Zimbabwe is not a rental car company. It does not own a fleet of vehicles, and is not, in the business of renting vehicles to the public. Rental Zimbabwe is in the business of providing an online platform where vehicle owners and those in need of a vehicle can meet and share vehicles amongst themselves subject to these Terms. Rental Zimbabwe is neither an insurance company nor an insurance broker. Rental Zimbabwe has obtained group liability and physical damage insurance policies in the USA and three provinces in Zimbabwe. Rental Zimbabwe is the named insured on those policies. If you receive protection under one of these group policies, your coverage is provided by third party insurance companies and/or their brokers Rounding off. Rental Zimbabwe may, in its sole discretion, round up or down amounts that are payable from or to Owners or Travelers to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest dollar, pound, or other supported currency). No Agency. Rental Zimbabwe does not appoint you or any other user as its employee, mandatory, legal agent, or form any kind of legal partnership or joint venture. You are not authorized to make any commitments on behalf of Rental Zimbabwe and Rental Zimbabwe will not make commitments on your behalf, except as contemplated by Services or expressly stated in this Agreement. General. This Agreement states the entire understanding between you and Rental Zimbabwe concerning your access to and use of the Rental Zimbabwe Services and supersedes any earlier verbal or written communications between us. With the exception of appointing a custodian to manage your vehicles on your behalf, you may not delegate your legal obligations or transfer any of your rights, in whole or in part, to any third party without advance written consent of the Rental Zimbabwe. You will remain responsible for your obligations hereunder in any event. If any provision of this Agreement is construed to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will not be affected and will continue in full force and effect. A Rental Zimbabwe Director or Officer must agree to any modification or waiver of any term of this Agreement in writing. Rental Zimbabwe’s failure to exercise any right under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other right Rental Zimbabwe may have. There is personal vehicle sharing legislation that may apply to you; more information is available in our FAQs. Headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of such Section. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if any provision of these Terms of Service are held to be invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be struck out and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Rental Zimbabwe can be contacted at the these addresses. If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 400 R Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, or by telephone at 1-800-952-5210. Translations. Where Rental Zimbabwe has provided you with a translation of the English language version of these Terms, in case of any wording discrepancies between the English and any other versions of the Terms, the English wording takes precedence. SPECIFIC TERMS FOR TRAVELERS The following Sections also apply if you rent a vehicle using the Services: Fees. You are responsible for paying all fees when they come due. You authorize Rental Zimbabwe to charge any payment methods on file in your account for all amounts due, including but not limited to, security deposits, processing fees, usage fees, fines/penalties, deductibles, and damages, and you furthermore represent and warrant that you have the right to make this authorization. You will be responsible for all of the costs relating to any citations and fines (e.g. tolls, parking tickets, towing fines) incurred during the rental period. Learn more about the various fees you may incur here and more about the protection packages available to you here. Your Financial Responsibility Is Primary. With regard to damage, losses, or other liabilities, you acknowledge that you are primarily liable, though you may fund that primary liability via any personal insurance you have available to you (e.g., applicable personal auto insurance or insurance from credit cards, etc.) which can be the primary source of funds for your liabilities hereunder. Any protection package you select when booking your vehicle, if one is offered via Rental Zimbabwe, will not be available to you until your personal insurance has been exhausted. In addition, Rental Zimbabwe’s protection package you select when booking your vehicle, if any, may not be available to you in the event you breach your obligations under these Terms or our Policies. Subject to the coverage and protection available to you, you acknowledge that you are fully responsible for any damage, losses, or other liabilities relating to your activities through the Rental Zimbabwe. You agree that in the event damage is reported, Rental Zimbabwe may immediately charge you up to the amount stipulated with the protection package that you selected when you booked the vehicle. Nothing in these Terms is intended to limit your responsibilities or Rental Zimbabwe’s legal rights in connection with your use of the Services. You acknowledge that Rental Zimbabwe may require and hold a deposit as part of the reservation of a vehicle. In addition to the terms in “Vehicle and Personal Protection” Section above: Most vehicle owners in North Zimbabwe participating in Rental Zimbabwe cannot offer commercial liability insurance to you, so Rental Zimbabwe has obtained, via its broker in the U.S.A, Porter & Curtis LLC, or directly from our insurer in Zimbabwe, a group insurance policy that provides secondary liability insurance to you. Further, there is no insurance or protection available via Rental Zimbabwe outside the U.S.A. and Ontario, Alberta, and Quebec, Zimbabwe. Where a vehicle owner can offer travelers at least legally required minimum insurance (liability and/or physical damage) through their own commercial or rental policy, the owner may choose to decline insurance via Rental Zimbabwe and provide its own coverage directly to you as the renter. You can determine directly in the vehicle listing whether the vehicle is insured via Rental Zimbabwe or via the vehicle owner directly. Where the vehicle owner provides its own protection to its renters, no insurance, protection, or roadside assistance is offered to you via Rental Zimbabwe. The owner will bill you directly for any applicable insurance, protection, or roadside assistance packages after booking, not through Rental Zimbabwe. In these circumstances, the vehicle owner may require you to sign additional paperwork, provide a deposit, or pay additional fees, costs, or taxes after booking, for instance when picking up the car. The vehicle owner may also have additional requirements that differ from Rental Zimbabwe requirements (like requiring a credit card deposit). By booking a vehicle where the owner is providing protection, you agree that the vehicle owner may impose additional terms and fees after booking. Where the owner of the vehicle has not opted to provide its own insurance and protection to you, you understand and agree that Rental Zimbabwe, or third party insurance companies, acting for the benefit of the owner will provide primary liability insurance for the owner and that you, as the traveler, will not look to the owner or the owner’s insurance policy for coverage, in accordance with our Policies and all applicable vehicle sharing statutes. You are fully responsible for paying any damage to the vehicle, subject to the protection package you selected, as well as deductibles, contribution, fees, expenses, liens, or fines arising out of your use of a vehicle rented through Rental Zimbabwe. If Rental Zimbabwe advances any payment on your behalf, you will continue to be responsible for such amounts and will adhere to Rental Zimbabwe’s schedule for repayment of those amounts to Rental Zimbabwe. Use of the Vehicle. When you rent a vehicle from an owner through Rental Zimbabwe, you must use the vehicle only for your personal use and not for any commercial purposes (e.g. driving for Uber or Lyft) unless you have express written permission from Rental Zimbabwe’s Legal Department in advance. You may not access a vehicle until the beginning of your rental period and you must return the vehicle on time and in the correct location. You must exercise reasonable care in your use of the vehicle. You are required at all times to operate the vehicle safely, and in compliance with all applicable laws, including without limitation, speed limits and prohibitions on impaired or distracted driving. In the event Rental Zimbabwe has any concern about your use of a vehicle, Rental Zimbabwe may terminate your reservation in its discretion at any time and require the return of the vehicle, including recovering the vehicle on behalf of the owner. You are required to wear seat belts during the operation of the vehicle and to require that all of your passengers wear seat belts. You are also required to meet any laws or regulations concerning carseats and other protections for young passengers. The Rental Zimbabwe Policies on our Services provide a list of “Prohibited Uses” of any vehicle rented through the Services. The list isn’t meant to be exhaustive. If you have any concerns about your planned use, please contact support.Rental Zimbabwe.com. You will be fully financially responsible for any claims, loss, or damage related to your misuse of a vehicle, and your protection package may be voided. Travelers also acknowledge that using a vehicle in a prohibited manner or otherwise breaching this Agreement may lower the traveler’s liability coverage to legal minimum limits, or nullify coverage and may furthermore nullify any comprehensive or collision protection where allowed by applicable law. Condition of the Vehicle. You understand that third parties 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. Please complete a visual inspection before you begin your use of the vehicle. If you find damage in your initial inspection, you should upload photos of such pre-existing damage at the start of your reservation here to ensure you are not held responsible for pre-existing damage. If you find damage on your initial inspection and fail to report it, Rental Zimbabwe 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 Rental Zimbabwe team immediately at 1-866-735-2901 in the US or 888-391-0460 in Zimbabwe. Incident Reporting. Where you received insurance or protection when booking your trip via Rental Zimbabwe, you must immediately report any damage to the vehicle you are using to Rental Zimbabwe at support.Rental Zimbabwe.com, or 1-866-735-2901 in the US or 888-391-0460 in Zimbabwe, and if there has been a collision, to the police as well. You will need to use all reasonable efforts to secure evidence from any available witnesses and to provide Rental Zimbabwe or third party claims administrators with a written description of the incident and any other information requested, including identity and insurance information of any parties involved in the incident. You are also required to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by Rental Zimbabwe, third party claims administrators, or insurers. After an incident, you may not continue to use the vehicle unless you have the explicit permission of Rental Zimbabwe staff. Failure to timely report an incident or cooperate in an investigation may reduce or invalidate protection received via Rental Zimbabwe. State Laws Regarding Rental Car Theft. It is a felony in most states to fail to return a rental car within a certain period of time after the rental period has expired. A non-exhaustive list of relevant statutes is hereby incorporated by reference. The following conduct may result in the reporting of the vehicle you have rented as stolen to law enforcement, possibly subjecting you and any other driver to arrest, and civil and/or criminal penalties, and the voiding of your insurance coverage and/or protection package:

  • If you fail to return the vehicle you have rented at the time and place agreed upon with the vehicle owner and/or designated in your reservation;
  • If you do not return the vehicle by the end of the rental period and you have not properly obtained an extension of the reservation through the Rental Zimbabwe system as set forth here, your conduct or inaction;
  • If vehicle is returned to any place other than the return location on the reservation or agreed upon with the owner. Any damage to, loss or theft of vehicle occurring prior to the owner inspecting the vehicle upon return at the end of the reservation is the renter’s responsibility;
  • If you misrepresent facts to the vehicle owner pertaining to rental, use, or operation of vehicle;
  • If the vehicle’s interior components are stolen or damaged when vehicle is unlocked or keys are not secured during the rental period;
  • If you fail or refuse to communicate in “good faith” with vehicle owner, police, Rental Zimbabwe, or other authorities with a full report of any accident or vandalism involving the vehicle or otherwise fails to cooperate in the investigation of any accident or vandalism;
  • If the vehicle is operated by anyone who has given a fictitious name, false address, or a false or invalid driver’s license; whose driver’s license becomes invalid during the rental period; who has obtained the keys without permission of the vehicle owner; or who misrepresents or withholds facts to/from the vehicle owner or Rental Zimbabwe material to rental, use or operation of Vehicle.

Repossession. Rental Zimbabwe, the vehicle owner and/or hired agent of Rental Zimbabwe or the vehicle owner may repossess any vehicle rented through the Services without demand, at the renter’s expense, if the vehicle is not returned by the end of the reservation, is found illegally parked, apparently abandoned, or used in violation of applicable law or these Terms. Missing Vehicles. If a vehicle you have rented through the Rental Zimbabwe Services goes missing and/or is stolen during the rental period (or extension period), you, as the renter, must immediately return the original ignition key to the owner; file a police report immediately after discovering the vehicle is missing or stolen, but in no event more than 24 hours after discovering it has gone missing; and cooperate fully with the vehicle owner, law enforcement, Rental Zimbabwe, and other authorities in all matters related to the investigation.
