Palo Alto is a perfect spot when you desire some respite from busyness of a big city. Guests come to explore Palo Alto's burgeoning art community and plenty of interest for history buffs. No matter what you pick to do first, you'll want to take in as much of Palo Alto as you can during your trip. And if you need to see what else is around Palo Alto, then jump in the driver's seat of your Enterprise car rental and see what else is out there.
We work with the most dependable companies in the world. Enterprise started back in 1957 with a fleet of only seven vehicles. Today, they're recognized as global leader in the rental car industry. Enterprise prides themselves on being available when you need them and fantastic customer service.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Palo Alto is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Enterprise's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Palo Alto. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Palo Alto average 28 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Palo Alto vacation can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Enterprise requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Enterprise.
Palo Alto's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Palo Alto.
