Usually, to rent a car in Provo you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find what the total is before you book your rental.
Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Provo?
When cruising through Provo 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. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S. of A. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise bringing it back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle 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
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
