Okinawa【remote island】What’s NOC (Non-Operation Charge)?

It is the amount the user pays to the car rental company as ‘compensation for business’ for the period when an accident/theft/breakdown/contamination, etc. occurs while using the rental car and the car requires repair or cleaning.

NOC will be charged even if your rental plan includes a CDW (Collision Damage Waiver).

For example, the cases below show the charges.
- When the car is still able to run and is returned to the rental office: 20,000 yen
- When the car does not run: 50,000 yen
* The charges for Times Car Rental vary according to vehicle classes.

‘Able to self-run’: 20,000 yen-50,000 yen, depending on the vehicle class; ‘Not able to self-run’: 50,000 yen-100,000 yen, depending on the vehicle class

Some car rental companies have a compensation system that exempts payment of NOC. The name of ‘NOC Compensation System’ may be different at each company.
