What's the age requirement to rent a car in Harrisburg?

Usually, the age limit for car rentals in Harrisburg is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to discover what the total is before you book your rental.

Does Harrisburg require rental car insurance?

Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Harrisburg. Check ahead of time and, if it is necessary, you can simply add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you wish to check out all that Harrisburg and maybe even the rest of North Carolina offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get started on your Harrisburg vacation, go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:

  • Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
