Terms and Conditions
Operating antique vehicles is labor intensive and expensive. There are also liability issues. As such the costs for renting our vehicles is relatively high. They are, however, less with the charges offered by the very few commercial outlets in the city that offer this service.

Additional fees for fuel may be required if the distance involved is over 50 miles.

The minimum fee for renting these vehicles for a parade that will take the vehicle off the museum's property for over four hours is $600.00. The fee includes fuel, insurance and a driver. Only an insured TTM driver may drive the vehicles.

Persons or groups renting TTM vehicles are responsible for decorating it within the guidelines set by any event organizers. TTM is fairly tolerant about how you decorate our vehicles. For night time events, we can provide a generator for an additional fee if one is needed to power lights. We may also be able provide a certain amount of suitable lights.

All persons riding on a TTM vehicle must sign a liability waiver before the parade begins. Parents or guardians must sign for riders under the age of 18.

TTM will not allow riders to violate event rules, such as throwing items to the crowd, the consumption of alcohol, and/or any other restrictions.

TTM reserves the right to deny an individual or group to ride on our vehicles if we suspect inebriation, if event rules are not being followed, or if there is a risk to TTM’s reputation or property due to behavior, dress or language
Photo & Video Shots

The fee for a video or photo shoot depends on the location and the amount of time the vehicle will be needed. If the shoot is at the museum, the use of our vehicles will be included in the total fee for the shoot. Some of our other vehicles may also be available if only needed for static background purposes.(See link on right hand side.)

If the shoot is within San Antonio, the fee is $600.00 per day. This includes our driver. Actors may be allowed to drive the vehicles on a very limited basis providing they have personal insurance and demonstrate an ability to drive these antiques.

If the shoot is outside of San Antonio, additional fees will be charged to cover the costs of time and fuel. If it is to be a long shoot at a different location, accommodation and meals for TTM personnel will have to be provided
