What is the Rent A Hobby Return Policy?


At Rent A Hobby we understand that although you may have planned a great trip/experience with us, things pop up and you may need to cancel or reschedule your booking. To accommodate such situations, we offer full refunds on cancelations made up to 48 hours before your booking. Unfortunately, cancellations made within 48 hours of your booking cannot be refunded, since the retailer will not have the appropriate time to repurpose the ordered equipment for another rental within those same days.


What are the shipping options?


Rent A Hobby currently does not have any shipping options. All bookings are to be picked up and dropped off in person at the preapproved location decided by you and your retailer.


How do I make sure I order the right size?


When ordering gear for all types of activities it is important to remember the different sizes equipment can come in. We are hard at work creating a sizing chart for all our customers to better assist you in determining which size gear is the best fit for you. In the meantime, please reach out to your retailer on what size they think works best for you.


Where are you located?


Rent A Hobby is currently headquartered in Los Angeles, California.


Can I make changes to an order I already placed?


Changes to an order may be requested, and will be approved, up to 48 hours before the booking date. This includes adding and/or subtracting an item to an order, as well as cancelling or rescheduling your booking entirely.


How do I get a new password?
