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

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lake Tahoe. If you're having difficulty deciding, make sure to look over our chart below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

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

Generally, to rent a car in Lake Tahoe you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find any additional charges is before you book your car.

Does Lake Tahoe require rental car insurance?

Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. Nevertheless, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Lake Tahoe. Check ahead of time and, if it is necessary, you can simply add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

What are the different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

Many rental car suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, the stand-out winner is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Lake Tahoe.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to see all that Lake Tahoe and maybe even the rest of Nevada offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."

Before you drive off

Before you get started on your Lake Tahoe trip, be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:

  • Look over the car and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
