  1. What happens if the vehicle breaks down due to a mechanical problem? Who tows it to I assume to the nearest garage and at whose cost?

    1. The rental car company will have a membership for roadside assistance and insurance that will cover them for this and get back on the road with a replacement car. No cost to you if you are not the cause of the mechanical problem.
