I had made my reservation to pick up my car at Albany Airport at the wrong location. The people behind the counter at Hertz were very helpful. I would use them again.

What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Albany?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Albany. If you're having a little trouble choosing, be sure to go over our chart below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

What age do you have to be to rent a car in Albany?

Normally, the age limit for car rentals in Albany is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to determine what the exact price will be before you book your rental.

Does Albany require rental car insurance?

Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a vehicle. Nevertheless, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Albany. Look into it before you book and, if it's required, you can conveniently add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Tips before you leave the lot

Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Albany adventure. You should take time to:

  • Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
