The van belongs to a rough and tumble family who regularly go on adventures. It is in great repair (new transmission about 8,000 miles ago) there are no dents, and few scratches. That being said, I understand the primary person wanting to rent a minivan is most likely a family! Families are naturally messy. I don't expect the van to be returned in pristine condition, and I understand if the exterior is a mess. Please just dump your trash! That being said, excessive mess (food stains, lots of crumbs and other debris, or other exceptional messes) will incur a cleaning fee.
I welcome guests with animals, however you will be expected to return the car in the same condition that you received it. Animal hair, mess, or smell will have to be cleaned otherwise there will be a charge.
The van is NON SMOKING. Smoking in the van will incur a hefty fee as my daughter has asthma and I cannot use the van again with her in it unless the odor is completely removed, which is an expensive process.
