Normally, to rent a car in Madison you must be at least 21. But, there might be an added charge if you're under the age of 25 or for higher category vehicles. Read through the supplier's terms to discover what any additional fees is before you rent your vehicle.

Is insurance required to rent a car in Madison?

When driving around Madison or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance through the rental agency. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Madison?

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Madison. You can drive as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Be sure to read your rental agreement to see if there are mileage limitations.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get started on your Madison trip, check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note 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 region
