1. Definitions. “Agreement” means all terms and conditions found in this form and any other forms executed by the Authorized Renter and any Authorized Drivers. “You” and “your” means the person identified as the Renter on the reverse, if any person signing this Agreement, any Authorized Driver and any person or organization to whom charges are billed by us at its or the renter’s direction. All persons referred to as “you” or “your” are jointly and severally bound by this Agreement. “We”, “our”, “us” or “BBS” means Beachfront Buggies and Scooters, LLC. “Authorized Driver” means the Authorized Renter listed by us on this Agreement, provided that such a person has a valid driver's license and is at least 25 years of age. "Additional Driver", if listed on the Agreement with a valid driver's license and at least 18 years of age, is authorized to operate the vehicle with permission of the Authorized Renter, unless the age restriction is changed by us elsewhere in this Agreement. “Vehicle” means the low speed vehicle identified in the Agreement and any vehicle we substitute for it, and all its tires, tools, accessories, equipment, keys and vehicle documents. “Physical Damage” means damage to, or loss of, the Vehicle caused by collision or upset; it does not include comprehensive damage, such as damage to, or loss of, the Vehicle due to theft, vandalism, act of nature, riot or civil disturbance, hail flood or fire. “Loss of use” means the loss of our ability to use the Vehicle for any purpose due to damage to it or loss of it during this rental. Loss of use is calculated by multiplying the number of days from the date the Vehicle is damaged until it is repaired or replaced, times the daily rental rate.
2. The Vehicle, Rental, Indemnity and Warranties. This is a contract for the rental of the Vehicle. You acquire no title to the vehicle and no one other than BBS may sell or assign the vehicle. You will not repair the vehicle without our consent. The vehicle is in good overall condition, with no apparent defects. We may repossess the Vehicle at your expense without notice to you, if the Vehicle is abandoned or used in violation of law or this Agreement. You agree to indemnify us, defend us and hold us harmless from all claims, liability, costs and attorney fees we incur resulting from, or arising out of, this rental and your use of the Vehicle. We make no warranties, express, implied or apparent, regarding the Vehicle, no warranty of merchantability and no warranty that the Vehicle is fit for a particular purpose. We shall in no event be liable to you or any Authorized Renter for any matter or cause of action related to any breach of the Rental agreement. You waive all rights and remedies granted to you by the Uniform Commercial Code under what is commonly known as Article 2A.
3. Condition of Return of Vehicle. You must return the Vehicle to the designated location on the date and time specified in the Rental Agreement and in the same condition as when you received the vehicle, except for ordinary wear. If the vehicle has to be returned after closing hours, you remain responsible for the loss of, and any damage to, the Vehicle until we inspect it upon our next opening for business. Service to the Vehicle or replacement of parts or accessories during the rental must have our prior approval. You may not keep the vehicle longer than thirty days unless you sign a new Rental Agreement. If you fail to do so, you will pay all our expenses and charges, including a delivery fee. You must check and maintain all fluid levels if rented for more than a seven-day period of time and upon instruction from us.
4. Responsibility for Vehicle Damage or Loss; Report to Police. You are 100% responsible for all loss or damage to the Vehicle, whether it is your fault or not, including damage caused by weather, acts of god or terrain conditions. You are responsible for the cost of repair, or the actual cash retail value of the Vehicle on the date of the loss if the Vehicle is not repairable or if we elect not to repair it, whether or not you are at fault. You are responsible for theft of the Vehicle, loss of use, diminished value of the Vehicle caused by damage to it or repair of it, and a reasonable charge to cover our administrative expenses connected with any damage claim, whether or not you are at fault. You must report accidents or incidents of theft and vandalism to us and the police as soon as you discover them and complete an Accident Report. You will deliver to us a legible copy of any service of process, pleading or notice of any kind relating to a claim or suit in connection with any accident involving the Vehicle.

The Policy will provide liability coverage with limits no higher than the minimum financial amounts required by Florida.

9. Your Property. You release us, our agents and employees from all claims for loss of, or damage to, your personal property or that of any other person, that we received, handled or stored, or that was left or carried in or on the Vehicle or in any service or delivery vehicles, whether or not the loss or damage was caused by our negligence or was otherwise our responsibility.

THIS RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION SHALL BE BINDING UPON YOUR HEIRS, ADMINISTRATORS, EXECUTORS, AND ASSIGNS.
12. Modifications. No term of this Agreement can be waived or modified except by a writing that we have signed. If you wish to extend the rental period, you must reserve the vehicle again and be approved before riding it beyond the original agreed upon pickup date and time. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us. All prior representations and agreements between you and us regarding this rental are void.
13. Miscellaneous. A waiver by us of any breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any additional breach or waiver of the performance of your obligations under this Agreement. Our acceptance of payment from you or our failure, refusal or neglect to exercise any of our rights under this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement. You agree that this Agreement and any dispute arising therefrom, as well as any dispute arising from your operation or use of the Vehicle, shall be determined by the courts of Florida and under the laws of the State of Florida.
Unless prohibited by law, you release us from any liability for consequential, special or punitive damages in connection with this rental or the reservation of a vehicle. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions are valid and enforceable.
