Maximum Rentals is also partially determined by your length as a member, frequency of visits and consistency of on-time returns. Dreaming Ant has the right to adjust your Maximum at its discretion.

Deposits are fully refundable if you replace with a valid Visa or MasterCard at any time or if you close your account - provided your account is in good standing. You must have your photo ID with you in order to get your refund.
