What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Gainesville?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Gainesville. If you're having trouble deciding, be sure to look over our table below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

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

Typically, to rent a car in Gainesville you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to determine what the exact rate will be before you book your rental.

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

When cruising through Gainesville or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for interim insurance with the rental supplier. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

The major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large 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 Gainesville.

What are the different fuel policies?

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

You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location

What fuel policy should I get?

We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Gainesville. You can cruise as much as you like without incurring extra charges. Be sure to read your policy to discover if there are mileage limitations.

Before you drive off

Before you get started on your Gainesville adventure, go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should:

  • Walk around your vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
