Smoke Free Rental Cars in Washington, D.C.

by Donna Estin:
We love clean air!  Especially in our smoke-free vehicles. All of our cars, SUVs and mini-vans are now non-smoking. 

We are committed to providing all of our clients an opportunity to drive fresh, smoke-free vehicles.  Research has shown that there is no level of ventilation that completely negates the harmful effects of second hand smoke.  Opening a car window while smoking does not eliminate the smoke, yet can result in air flow back into the vehicle causing smoke to be blown directly into the back seat.

For smokers wishing to rent a car from us, yes, you can rent and drive the vehicles, you just cannot smoke in the vehicle.  Kindly smoke outdoors in designated public places or in the comfort of your home.  

Driving a cleaner, fresher vehicle is a standard we work hard to achieve.  From eliminating smoke to preventing upholstery and carpet damage caused by cigarettes, we strive to keep our vehicles in top condition for all of our renters.  You deserve to drive in a healthy, safe environment, free from smoke.  It's good for you and for the air we breathe.  For these reasons we have adopted a smoke-free policy fleet wide.  A $200 penalty will be charged upon check in for anyone in violation. 

Thank you for observing this healthy policy. We hope you enjoy your rental experience with us even more.
