Reservations & Cancellations

Drivers are responsible for making advanced reservations, providing billing information and departmental authorization. If the vehicle is needed longer than the original reservation, the driver is responsible for notifying the Vehicle Rental Office to request an extension. As a courtesy to other customers and to avoid additional charges, please cancel any unneeded reservations at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled pick-up time. Failure to cancel a reservation will result in a one day rental charge. Reservations may be cancelled by calling 530-752-0787 or emailing  VehicleReservation@ad3.ucdavis.edu.
