ZADART, THE ART OF ZAD.
Zad is an ancient word meaning royalty and fortune; the essence of our Zadart brand.
Try the experience yourself and you will understand why “The Art of Zad” has made Zadart the premiere exotic car club and rental agency in the Pacific Northwest.
Our attractive prices gets us many out-of-state inquiries, especially from California and Oregon.
While delivering the car outside the range of 300 miles from Seattle is more complex, we can still accommodate it. However, the delivery cost is significantly higher as it must include also the rental fees for the days that the car is spending on the interstate being delivered.
Although the delivery is expensive, renting our cars in California can still make financial sense especially for longer term rentals (more than a couple of weeks).
We love repeat business!
If you can commit to rent from us regularly, we will make it worthwhile for you.
Our Zadart Dream Club is designed to reward our loyal customers with access to our fleet for a fraction of the price.
Call and us we can schedule a meeting to go over with you on this amazing program.
The rental rates are subject to the laws of supply and demand and thus are variable.
You will get the best prices if you book in the middle (Mon-Thu) of the week. Weekends can be 25% more expensive than mid-week rates.
High season (May-September) and holidays command additional premiums just like hotels, airlines and other car rental businesses do.
We do give special discounts for longer term rentals.
You can cancel you rental at any time. However, the $232 per day reservation deposit is non-refundable.
Please note, you can retain your deposit amount as a credit to used towards a rental at a later date.
If your cancelation is more than 48 hours before the scheduled rental the rental fee (amount above the minimum $232 deposit) will stay as a credit for future rentals. Otherwise your rental fee is forfeit.
We make a special dispensation for snow days. If it snows on your day of rental we will credit that day for future rentals in full. Stay home and stay safe.
It is a result of several factors:
- We have very aggressive pricing strategy that results in very high booking ratio. So sometimes it can be challenging to find your dream car at the desired dates requested. We encourage you to try the other cars that are available for these dates – all of them are awesome!
- In addition, some of the cars are engaged in long term rentals that blocks their availability for multiple weeks. If you are interested in such long term rental – let us know and we can arrange for special pricing.
- From time to time we will allow reservations for a car that we are still in the process of acquiring. For that car, the reservation window will be available only for 2+ months advance reservation – allowing for a healthy safety margin and ensuring we will have the car at hand when you need to pick it up.
No. No. No.
All insurance policies will immediately be voided if you race or compete with the car. Driving at high speed without insurance coverage is simply reckless. Don’t get anywhere near a race track!
We trace our cars and we know where the race tracks are around here. We will know you were there and we impose a hefty fee for violating the rule.
So please – just don’t do it.
If you are involved in an accident, follow the regular procedures – call the police, exchange personal and insurance details (your own insurance) with the other party just like you would do with your own car.
Once you have done that – you must call and notify us so we can start notifying other customers of the situation and make alternate arrangements.
If the car can be driven safely back to us, please bring it back. Otherwise we will need to tow it to a garage.
You and your insurance company will need to cover the damages as described in the rental agreement.
We do not sell or provide insurance for physical damage or liability. The only coverage we offer is for loss of use & diminished value, although, these additional coverage options are not required. They are only offered since they are not covered, or covered adequately for vehicles like our own.
However, if you own a car, your own insurance policy will typically cover rental cars as well; even the premium rentals vehicles that we offer .
Please note, to rent our cars you will need to make sure that you carry comprehensive & collision coverage’s. The vast majority of U.S carriers offer what is called “Actual Cash Value, Market Value, ACV, MV ” limits. This means that in the event of an accident your insurance will cover the vehicle at its fair market value, even if the car on your insurance policy value is well below one of the rentals.
Indeed, most of our customers use their own personal auto insurance for the rental. If you run into issues with your insurance agent we can help you straighten it out – we have developed an expertise in the subject. Our experience taught us that many insurance agents are not familiar with the rental car coverage that the policy provides. Some may even tell you that exotic cars are excluded. In almost all cases they would be wrong as the standard insurance policy does not exclude exotic and luxury cars.
If you do not carry comprehensive and collision coverage you can add them to you policy and remove them from you policy after your rental. Generally, they require you add the coverage for at least the remainder of the month, although, you can request it to be removed after your rental and the charge will be pro-rated.
Additionally, if you are adding these coverage’s to your policy we require a minimum of 24-hour period before you rental begins with these coverage’s being active. Moreover, some insurance companies require 3 business days to change the coverage so make sure you handle this well before you arrive to pick up the car.
We will check and verify that you have a proper car insurance policy in force that includes both liability and comprehensive coverage. You must bring your insurance card with you when you pick the rental car up.
BEWARE of relying on the credit card companies coverage for rental cars. They all EXCLUDE coverage for luxury car rentals. That said, American Express has an excellent program for Luxury rentals but they charge (a very reasonable) additional fee for it. We highly recommend using them! – Please note, this can be used in addition to a traditional auto policy, not as a stand alone.
If you do not have an insurance policy in force, let us know. There are companies online that will gladly sell you insurance coverage on rental cars. Not all of them will allow luxury cars. We can help you find them if you need help.
You need to bring your:
- driver’s license
- your car insurance card
- an alternate form of identification (credit card, employee badge etc).
You also need to bring your wits with you. If we suspect that you are intoxicated, even slightly, we will cancel your rental without a refund.
We are not joking here – these are fast lethal machines and we will not allow you to endanger yourself or others with them.
Yes we do deliver.
We can typically deliver to the SeaTac Airport, Seattle and around the east side. However, we can also deliver much long distances.
We do charge for the delivery to cover our costs. We are not trying to make a profit here – but there are driver hours, miles and fuel to deliver the car and then the driver has to take a Taxi back to our business. It all adds up…
We can also do long distance delivery and pick up (Portland, Spokane, Vancouver or Bellingham). For such distances, the delivery costs are substantially higher and the logistics are more complex. But nothing is out of the question.
We are always willing to go the extra mile for our customers. And sometimes, thousands of extra miles! One of our customers wanted to drop the car in New Jersey! It was complex (and expensive), but we were able to pull it off because your wishes are our command.
Our normal business hours 10:00AM to 7:00PM.
However your satisfaction is paramount and we will do our best to accommodate your situation within reason.
If you have special needs outside our business hours, let us know and we will try to find a way to make it work.
Each of our cars have an associated hourly rental rate and a cost per mile rate. To “Rent by the Hour” please book the car for the exact dates and times desired. You will get charged for the hourly service. Upon return, you will get charged for miles driven.
Please make sure to return the car at the time designated – there are likely other reservations for the car and a late return would be very unfair to others who are waiting for the car. As much as we hate it, we have to impose substantial late fees for late returns.
We have a minimum of 4 hours for the hourly rentals.
