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

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit East Lyme. If you're having trouble choosing, make sure to read over our table below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

What's the age requirement to rent a car in East Lyme?

Typically, to rent a car in East Lyme you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to go over the rental agreement to discover what the total is before you book your rental.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in East Lyme?

Insurance is always needed, no matter where you rent a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it to your booking for East Lyme. Look into it before you book and, if it is necessary, you can easily add it at checkout.

What fuel policy should I get?

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in East Lyme?

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over East Lyme. You can drive wherever you want without incurring added charges. Be sure to read your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage restrictions.

Tips before you leave the lot

Make sure you check a few things before you leave the car rental lot on your East Lyme adventure. You should:

  • Walk around the car and be sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
