Car rentals in New Castle: What you need to know

Whether you are in New Castle on business or for a vacation, having the option to go where you want to go, when you need to can help make your trip all the better. Using New Castle public transportation may be a cheap method to see the neighborhood, but if you want to get to a different area of Wilmington, you might be left waiting a long time.

We can help you get an affordable price and the automobile of your choice. Read through our tips to find out all that you need to know about car rentals in New Castle.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in New Castle?

The minimum age to rent a car in most cities like Wilmington is 21. Make sure to check the supplier's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially. Take time to check the supplier's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.

It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to New Castle.

Am I required to fill my tank before I return my rental car back?

We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refill the tank before you return. To avoid any added expenses, you should fill up your tank before you bring it back to the supplier.

Most car rental providers offer one-way rentals. It may be simpler to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Keep in mind that there is usually an added fee for one-way car rentals. Be sure to know the provider's policy to know the total cost.
