What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Winnipeg?
Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this Manitoba town means you're certain to find a car that suits your needs. Some options include:
What age do you have to be to rent a car in Winnipeg?
Usually, the age limit for car rentals in Winnipeg is 21. But, you may find that there is an added fee if you are under the age of 25 or for higher category rentals in particular. Go over the supplier's terms to find what the exact rate is before you rent your vehicle.
Does Winnipeg require rental car insurance?
When driving around Winnipeg or the rest of Canada, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip.
The major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Winnipeg.
What is the difference between all the 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?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank 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 mileage is a good option 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. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Winnipeg adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
