What is a Vehicle Rental Agreement?

A vehicle rental agreement is a legal document a renter or lessee signs when they rent a car from a company or other party. This agreement between the lessee and the rental car company, called the lessor, protects both parties.

The lessee is responsible for any damage done to the car during the rental period. The person renting the car, or the lessee, must read all the terms and conditions of the rental, and signing the agreement means the lessee agrees to abide by those terms and conditions.
