All additional damage charges will be waived. On the day of rental, the renter's credit card will have a hold placed on the card for the security deposit in the amount of $3,500 per vehicle. Once the vehicle is returned and inspected for possible damage or abuse and no signs of damage or abuse are found, the credit hold will be immediately released. If there is any damage or abuse detected, then Happy Trails Rental will keep the security deposit hold in place to allow a mechanic time to inspect and report all damages.
