How old do you have to be to rent a car in Eliot?

Generally, the age limit for car rentals in Eliot is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the terms to discover what the total will be before you rent your vehicle.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Eliot?

When driving in Eliot or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

The major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Eliot.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing it back with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you wish to see all that Eliot and maybe even the rest of Maine offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get going on your Eliot adventure, check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Look over your vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scratches. 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
  • 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
