What if I dont return my rental truck at the designated time or day?

There is a grace period of about 30 minutes for returning the truck. After that additional charges and taxes may apply. So, if you know you're going to be late, call the company ahead of time and request them to give you a cushion time to return the vehicle. But if you just arrive late to return the truck, the company charges $100 for an additional day.

In this case, you may have to keep your truck for one more day since the company is charging you for it anyway. So, be careful while renting a truck and make sure to refill the tank before returning the truck to avoid additional charges.

If you wish to extend your rental from the original return time or date, make sure to contact your truck rental agent to accommodate your request. However, some agents are cool, and they'll take the charge off if you have a valid reason for returning the vehicle late. Remember, if you fail to contact the company and keep the truck for an extended time, it could be reported as stolen and you could possibly be arrested.
