The car hire programme is offered as another service to your Costco membership. Our goal is to offer outstanding car hire value which is only available to Costco members. Just like in a Costco warehouse, we offer brand names you recognise and trust.
Your Costco Travel account is different and requires a separate registration. After you have registered, you can log in to your profile at any time to view or print your car hire reservations.
All prices will reflect applicable Costco member discounts and applicable coupons, plus any taxes and fees. Our Low Price Finder will automatically calculate the best applicable coupon combinable with the Costco member discount, based on the length of hire, car type, location, reservation and travel dates.
Amendments cannot be made to bookings once they are confirmed. We suggest you create a new booking with the amendments you require and cancel the old booking.

The colours, makes and models shown on Costco Car Hire are a guide only. There are no guarantees that you will get this exact car at pick up.
A major credit card must be presented at time of pickup in the renter's name. Occasionally during pickup, monetary holds are placed on credit cards for car hires above a certain price. For specific types of cards accepted and inquiries regarding hold amounts, it is suggested that you contact the car company location directly. (The phone number is listed on your invoice.)

No. Rates fluctuate based on demand, availability and marketplace forces. There is no exact method to determining a rate. However, rates generally revolve around daily (up to four days, Monday through Wednesday); weekend (up to four days, Thursday through Sunday); weekly (five to 20+ days); and monthly rates (28 days or more). To find the best rate, you should select based on travel needs, and then adjust different pick up/drop-off days and times accordingly. Please note: Any change to pick up/drop-off time or date could increase the cost of the hire.
Just as there is no set method in determining a rate due to demand, availability and marketplace forces, the same applies to car categories. A certain location may have less inventory of an intermediate car due to demand, thus making a standard more reasonably priced.
Drivers younger than 30 and older than 70 may incur a fee when reserving a vehicle. The fee varies by company and location, and Costco Car Hire does not have the ability to determine the underage driver fee for each location. Car categories may also be limited for drivers younger than 30. Please call 0800 0147 386 to book directly with the car hire company.
Many locations provide unlimited mileage; however, it depends on the specific location and car hire company. To view mileage or geographic restrictions, please refer to the 'Geographic Restrictions/Mileage Rule' bullet to the right of the selected car on the car hire grid.
