We have structured our rental periods to suit your needs. The last thing we want is you worrying about not getting your book back to us on time. Therefore, we have incorporated, at no extra charge, a 7 day grace period which allows you the flexibility to hold on to the book long enough to give you sufficient time to read it. We’ve been in your shoes. That’s why it’s there! We encourage you to use it.
Even after exhausting the grace period, if you feel that you need a longer time to read the book then you can re-rent your book. Simply call us and request for re-rent. Your account will be updated to show the new status.
