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

Typically, the age limit for renting a car in Gainesville is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to discover what the exact price will be before you rent your car.

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

Insurance is always needed, no matter where you're renting a car. 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, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Gainesville. Look into it before you book and, if it's needed, you can simply add it at checkout.

Know before you go

Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Look over your car and be sure there is no dents 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
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
