Be sure to read over the rental agreement to figure out any additional fees will be before you reserve your rental.
Does Lowell require rental car insurance?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through rental car company for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check car rental supplier's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.
You will need to find an open gas station near your rental car supplier
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Lowell and maybe even the rest of Massachusetts offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Lowell. Read the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Lowell adventure. You should:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
