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

Usually, the age limit for car rentals in Essex 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 read over the supplier's terms to find what the exact price will be before you book your rental.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Essex?

Insurance is mandatory, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you might already be covered by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it is necessary, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing it back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you bring it back.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several customers all over Essex. You can cruise wherever you want without incurring extra charges. Go over your policy to see if there are any restrictions.

Know before you go

Make sure you check a few items before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around the car and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • 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 windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
