If there are any unpaid charges for the car rental, the charges will be charged to the registered credit card. If there are no unpaid charges, there will be no charge to your credit card. Also, credit card payment is required to purchase ToCoo! products.
If you need to extend your rental period, you must call the outlet in advance to arrange for an extension of the rental period. Late charge payment must be made at the time when you return the vehicle.
