What types and makes of rental cars are on offer in Oakland?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Oakland. If you're having a little trouble deciding, be sure to go over the table below. We have compared the most popular categories for you:

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

Normally, the age limit for car rentals in Oakland is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to figure out what the exact charge is before you book your car.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Oakland?

When driving in Oakland or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

What are the 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 a gas station near your rental car supplier

What fuel policy should I get?

We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". But, if you return the 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 gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before bringing the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.

Before you drive off

Be sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should:

  • Walk around your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
