Frequently asked questions
If you’ve found your ideal wheels but don’t have the budget to pay in advance, Expedia has got your back. With our Book Now Pay Later option, you’ll only pay in full when it’s time to pick up your car in Chinatown. The rental company will also place a hold on your credit card for the amount of the deposit. Cheaper deals may require you to pay upfront, but don’t worry — this will be clearly shown in the booking details. Whether you’re seeking an economy car or a minivan that’ll fit all your friends, Expedia has the keys to your next amazing adventure.
Cancelling a prepaid rental with at least six hours notice should allow for a complete refund. But this is not always the case. It’s a good idea to check your itinerary and cancellation policy. Still can’t find the answer? Head over to our Customer Service Portal.
