CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Big Bear Lake is 21. Take time to read through Enterprise's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Big Bear Lake. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes.

If you are hoping to enjoy Big Bear Lake's coast, then go for a convertible for some fun under the sun.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Big Bear Lake. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Enterprise does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Big Bear Lake. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Enterprise rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Enterprise.
Big Bear Lake's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've spent a day at the beach or explored the shore. If you are wanting to add some adventure to your Big Bear Lake trip, you can also drive to Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain and spend a night riding the park's attractions.
Enterprise typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Enterprise. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
