Once you confirm your reservation leaving your credit card number, you will receive a confirmation email with all the elements you chose.

The amount of the rent is not charged until you return the product to the store. The same with the deposit, the amount is charged by ARC only in case of theft, damage or loss.

Either way, if you have any questions, you can send an email to Adorama, they’ll answer very quickly.


When to make the reservation of the equipment?

I recommend booking early to ensure they have the material available on your dates. When ARC has only a few items left they are more expensive.
