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

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this California city means you're certain to find a vehicle that is perfect for you. Some options include:

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

Normally, the age limit for car rentals in Monterey 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 read the terms to figure out what the total is before you book your rental.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Monterey?

Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance through the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will cover your car rental. But there may be limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles such as premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Monterey.

What is the fuel policy for Monterey rental cars?

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

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. We suggest returning your car topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

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

If you wish to explore all that Monterey and maybe even the rest of California offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Monterey. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."

  • Monterey Bay Aquarium

Fortunately, you'll be able to drive to the one you want or see all of them.

Know before you go

Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Monterey adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
  • Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
