The Reservation Process

RESERVATION TYPE: Once you open your KINTO app to make your first reservation, you will create a new reservation by selecting your reservation type, either weekly or custom. Currently, hourly and daily rentals are available as the CUSTOM reservation type in select locations in the Dallas, Texas, area.

WHEN: Select your pick-up and return date and time

WHERE: Your current location is the base used for availability, and you can click locations nearby to select the location you prefer. Then, you will check availability.

SELECT VEHICLE: The app will show you the various vehicles available at each location in your area and the weekly rate.

CONFIRM AND PAY FOR YOUR RESERVATION: You must confirm your reservation and pay for it in full. You can pay by credit or debit card, which must be issued in the customer’s name.


What Type of Vehicles Can You Rent

When you make your reservation, you can select the vehicle category and model year group. Vehicle categories include compact, midsize, Sienna (van), SUVs, hybrids, and electric vehicles. You will receive details on the vehicle assigned to you 24 hours before pick-up. Unfortunately, you cannot select a particular model, color, or trim.


Extend Your Reservation 

If you rent your KINTO car for a week, you can extend the reservation weekly. However, we can only guarantee that your rental can be extended within the first 48 hours; after that, the extension is not guaranteed. Update your reservation return time to submit an extension.


Unable to Book a Reservation

Suppose you cannot locate a specific vehicle type or availability for the dates and times selected. In that case, we recommend expanding your search or changing the dates and times of pick-up. You can reserve your vehicle one week in advance, increasing your chances of what you need and when. Please note that vehicle model year and type vary by location.


$25 in Driving Credit

As a reminder, once your application is approved, you will have $25 in driving credits in your KINTO wallet that you can use for your first reservation.
