There is no model year guarantee for Econo fleet units. Clients should come with expectation that they will get a 2005 model and El Monte will not entertain any claims or requests for refund because of the unit age or appearance.

El Monte will still be offering the Premier model year guarantee. Premier is for those clients who are willing to pay more for a more recent model year unit. Econo is for those clients who are willing to take a more experienced unit in order to get it for a lower price.

One Way Rentals:
One-Way Rentals are on request only - No Free Sale. Prices are in US dollars. One-way fee is determined by where the desired Pickup and Return locations’ row and column intersect. For example, one-way fee from SFO to SLC is $350; from MIA to YVR it is $750.
Please click here to view the One Way Fee Chart

Import / Export Fee:
We try to confirm all One-way requests. However, there are times when the direction of the drop or time of year does not make sense in terms of fleet utilization. Therefore, El Monte RV will consider accepting a specific one-way request for the standard one-way fee PLUS up to an additional $2,000 to import or export the motor home to or from the location needed.

 
Security Deposit:
- A USD $1,000 security deposit is required at the time of departure.
- We require that the deposit be guaranteed by a major credit card such as Visa, MasterCard or American Express with sufficient credit balance to cover this amount. No ATM/debit cards such as EuroCard or pre-paid credit cards are accepted. Cash or Travelers Checks are not accepted.
- The security deposit will be charged on the customer’s credit card on pick up, then refunded upon return provided that the rental vehicle is returned clean inside, undamaged and on time. The USD $1,000 may take up to 8 weeks to be credited back to the customer’s credit card. Currency conversion fees are client’s responsibility.

  

Flex Rates:
Elmonte's Daily Rental Rates are know as 'Flex Rates' . These give you the very best available price for the motorhome you want to rent. If you book early and there are plenty of motorhomes available, you will pay a much lower price. If you book closer to departure date or book for a high demand period then the rate will be higher. This is a similar system to that used by airlines.

No mileage is included in the Flex rates. Choose from the available mileage options above. Once booked and confirmed, should you need to change, the rate will be re-calculated using the most current Flex rate and compared to the existing flex rate. The higher rate will prevai. Changing party size or adding pre-paid items does not consitute a change. Flex rate valid for 40 days and on day 41 a new Flex rate will apply.
