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

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Salem. If you're having a little trouble picking the right car, make sure to look over the chart below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

What age do you have to be to rent a car in Salem?

Generally, to rent a car in Salem you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to review the rental agreement to discover what the exact charge will be before you reserve your rental.

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

When driving around Salem or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental agency. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

What are the different fuel policies?

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

What fuel policy should I get?

We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your 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 to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before returning the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Salem. You can drive as much as you want without incurring added charges. Read over your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage limitations.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you begin on your Salem vacation, make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Inspect 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
  • 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
