PURPOSE OF THE SITE; RESERVATIONS AND TRANSACTIONS.
National provides the Site solely in order to assist you in viewing car rental options and submitting a reservation request. This Site does not assure you that you will be able to secure a reservation, that We will accept your request for a reservation or that We will not cancel a reservation. Rental contracts between National and users of the Site are exclusively entered into at branch locations of National and its affiliates or their respective franchisees and are not entered into through this Site.
All reservations and transactions made through the Site are subject to National’s acceptance, which is in our sole discretion. Without limitation, this means that National may refuse to accept or may cancel any reservation or transaction, whether or not the reservation or transaction has been confirmed, for any or no reason, in our sole discretion, and, unless you select the prepayment option (if available), without liability to you or any third party. By way of example and without limitation, We may refuse to accept or cancel a reservation due to inventory shortages, inventory constraints and manufacturer recalls.
You may cancel a reservation at any time, regardless of whether or not the reservation or transaction has been confirmed, for any or no reason. The cancellation is without liability to you, unless you select the prepayment option (if available).
