Can I Change My Pick-up Or Drop-off Time?

Sure, however Hotwire can only guarantee the quoted rate for the prearranged reservation. If you return the car more than 30 minutes late, you may be charged by the car rental agency for extra rental days, and potentially at a higher rate.

If your plans change in advance, you may be able to cancel your original reservation without penalty and create a new reservation. Log in "My Account" on the Hotwire site. If you’re able to cancel the reservation, a "Cancel Reservation" button will be available next to the car booking. If you’ve already picked up the car and want to change the drop-off time, contact the car rental agency to see if they’re able to accommodate the change. You can find their contact information in your confirmation email. Please note that additional fees may apply.
All Hot Rate® Car bookings are final and cannot be cancelled, refunded, changed, exchanged, or transferred, even for a fee. We can’t reimburse you for unused portions of your reservation. However, if an airline delay prevents you from arriving within 24 hours of your original pick-up time, you can cancel your reservation after Hotwire verifies the situation.
