Slingshot Rental Services
Requirements / Age Limit
Driving the Polaris Slingshot is way more fun than you’re going to believe. However, drivers must be over the age of 21 with clean driving records (no major moving violations, DUI convictions, or similar infractions). Unfortunately, on our Polaris Slingshot, we cannot rent any vehicles to drivers under the age of 21.
All renters must be physically present at the start of the rental. Unfortunately, we do not allow 3rd parties to pick up vehicles and our employees must physically hand the keys over to the person who will be driving.
To rent the Polaris Slingshot, drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission. You can also check our article with the explanation of the 5 requirements to drive a Polaris Slingshot.
The easiest option is for you to purchase our insurance at an additional daily charge.
This deposit is fully refundable following the completion of the rental. If you are using an American Express card for the deposit, it is run as an “authorization only” (no actual charge). If you are using a Visa, Mastercard or Discover card, this deposit is run as a charge which is then reversed following the completion of the rental.
Because we have a limited supply of vehicles to offer, we pack the schedule very tightly. We offer a 24-hour grace period after you make your reservation to make changes or cancel (unless the rental is within 7 days), after which there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the total rental cost or $250 (whichever is greater).
If you cancel or reschedule less than 7 days before your rental (or are a no-show at the time of rental), you will be charged a cancellation fee of 100% of the total rental cost.
Please understand that there are NO exceptions to this cancellation policy.
Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather. As per the cancellation policy above, we cannot offer refunds or rescheduling if the skies decide not to play nice.
However, if there is a weather condition on a particular day that might make driving dangerous (i.e. snow, ice, hurricane, tornado, alien attack, etc.) and you do not actually use your vehicle on that day, we may (at our discretion) offer you an extension on your rental or credit on a future rental.
For example, if you rent a car Fri – Sun, it snows on Sun, and the car remains parked in your garage, you may be able to extend your rental through Monday for no additional charge. If you’ve got a question about this policy, just give us a call and we’ll work with you.

An E-Passor SunPass (in Florida) is included in each vehicle, so you can zip through tolls and focus on driving (and having fun!) without worrying about fumbling for change. If you rent from our Dallas location toll passes WILL NOT be included and you will be charged for any toll fees
All vehicles will come with a full tank of gas, and you must bring it back the same way.
When you do gas up, all vehicles must be refueled with Premium grade (93+ octane) gasoline. There is a $75 fee for filling up with a lesser grade. And yes, we’ll know.
In the event of an unforeseen mechanical failure during or prior to a rental, we will make every effort to repair or replace your vehicle with a similar or better model at no additional cost to you.
Vehicles rented from our Daytona Beach office may not be driven outside the state of Florida without prior written approval. Vehicles rented from our Dallas office may not be driven outside the state of Texas.
