NO SHOWS forfeit the full amount of the booking fee for the rental period reserved. Any party that has not arrived by the scheduled time of the rental shall be deemed a NO SHOW.

 

We reserve the right to cancel your reservation for violations to our policies.

 

We reserve the right, solely at our discretion, to reschedule and/or cancel your reservation in the event of inclement weather. Bookings canceled due to weather (or any other VALID and APPROVED reason) during the rental period will be given a voucher for credit toward the use of rental at a later date or time unless Dallas Watersport Rentals has made several attempts to confirm the rental. Such vouchers will be determined at the sole discretion of Dallas Watersport Rentals Staff.

 

Substitution Policy:

Inevitably, the reserved watercraft will occasionally be unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances at the time of your rental reservation. We reserve the right to offer you a substitute watercraft of equal or higher value instead of the initially reserved watercraft at no extra cost to you. If no other watercraft is available, we have no choice but to reschedule or cancel your reservation at the sole discretion of Dallas Watersport Rentals Staff.

 

Damage Policy:

A damage deposit of $300 per watercraft is due before departure, in addition to any applicable rental charges, booking fees, other taxes and fees, fuel surcharges, or other incidentals, including additional fees for actual damages to the watercraft. In the event of damage, the damage deposit will be retained, or may be adjusted up or down by Dallas Watersport Rentals Staff based on their assessment of actual or probable damage and other related costs, including but not limited to the actual or estimated costs of repair for physical damage to the watercraft, cost of recovery to equipment/passengers, towing fees, staffing costs to trailer equipment to repair facility, and lost rentals, at that time based on their sole discretion. 

 

Dallas Watersport Rentals will have the damage further assessed by authorized third party repair facility (within approximately two weeks from the time that the damaged rental is returned) at which time the damage deposit charge may be adjusted accordingly. Final costs associated with damages, including those from the authorized repair facility, may be further modified after the repairs have been completed and Dallas Watersport Rentals pay the final invoice. Providing the damage does not exceed the damage deposit amount, the adjusted charges should be applied and the remaining deposit charges, if applicable, will be returned within approximately 2-3 Weeks.

 

Renter is responsible for any losses and damages to Dallas Watersport Rentals watercraft while in their care, including but not limited to full cost of new replacement watercraft, from causes including but not limited to trailering, launching, running aground, collision with other boaters or objects on or below the water, running engine or systems out of fluids or with low fluids causing premature wear to mechanical systems, weather loss, dockage, anchoring, or any other cause whether or not the Renter is directly at fault. 

 

Renter will get his/her damage deposit back if the watercraft is returned unharmed as determined solely by Dallas Watersport Rentals staff.

 

Renter is solely responsible for ensuring the safety and passengers of the vessel during the rental period.

 

All damages or loss to watercraft above $100 or injury to person or property must be reported to Dallas Watersport Rentals and local law enforcement immediately.

 

Refund Policy:

All refunds will be made by the method of payment used for the reservation, or by voucher at the discretion of Dallas Watersport Rentals and mailed to the billing address or emailed to the account provided to us.

 

There is NO early return refund. Dallas Watersport Rentals reserves the right to rent out the watercraft to an alternative renter if returned early and is NOT obligated to refund or credit the original Renter under these circumstances. 

 

Insurance Policy:

Dallas Watersport Rentals carries liability insurance coverage for all watercraft, however physical damages incurred during the rental period are NOT covered. Renter is fully responsible for all of the costs related to damage to the watercraft, including lost rental revenues. A lot can happen on the water like big waves, wind, storm, sinkage, running aground, sucking up a towrope, striking objects below the water line such as tree stumps, sucking up debris, or just bumping the dock or another boat. 

Fuel Policy: 

Additional charges will apply if Renter requests extra fuel after using up the full tank. Renter may use up some or all of the fuel without refueling. If Renter decides to refuel, NO credit will be given for additional fuel added or any unused portion of fuel provided by Dallas Watersport Rentals

 

ACCEPTABLE USE

Renter agrees and acknowledges that he/she will be the sole operator of the watercraft, and will use the watercraft in a careful, safe, and conscientious manner.

Upon notification of termination, Renter must return the Craft to the designated docking area immediately. If the rental is terminated for unsafe or hazardous use, Renter will not be refunded his/her security deposit. Dallas Watersport Rentals shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether any behavior or activity is “unsafe or hazardous.”

The Renter shall return the watercraft to the designated docking area clean, free of garbage and debris, and in the same condition as it was in when given to Renter, excepting ordinary wear and tear. Renter shall be responsible for any damage caused to the watercraft during the rental period. Dallas Watersport Rentals shall retain any portion (or all) of Renter’s damage deposit as necessary to cover repairs for such damages. To the extent that damages to the watercraft exceed the amount of the security deposit, Renter shall be billed by Dallas Watersport Rentals for the full cost of damages caused by Renter during the rental period, including reasonable attorney’s fees.

 

LATE RETURN 

If Renter returns the watercraft to the designated docking area more than 20 minutes after the scheduled “Time In,” Renter shall forfeit his/her security deposit. Late return of rentals will be assessed a prorated amount based on the applicable hourly rental rate for that piece of watercraft as determined solely by Dallas Watersport Rentals staff.

Renters are responsible not only for additional rental time but also for additional fees as mentioned above, including but not limited to taxes, fees, booking fees, fuel surcharges, incidentals, and lost rental time. If another customer has the watercraft booked for a time that immediately follows the reservation in question, and Dallas Watersport Rentals loses that rental and the watercraft has been returned 30 or more minutes late, Renter will be responsible for lost rental time as well, regardless of the duration of the other rental. 

Renter has read and understands all the terms, conditions, and rules set forth above, and agrees to all terms without reservation.
