How old do I have to be to rent a car in Ankeny?

The youngest age to rent a vehicle in most cities, like Ankeny, Des Moines, is 21. Be aware that there is ordinarily an additional charge if you or the added driver are under 25 years of old. Check with the rental car company before you book. Moreover, for higher categories, such as premium, large capacity vehicles, or SUVs, the age restrictions can be different.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car?

The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance with the car rental company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ankeny.

What fuel policy should I go for in Ankeny?

Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing the car back with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, you should find a filling station before you return the car to the supplier. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do most providers offer one-way rentals in Ankeny?

Most car rental companies offer one-way rentals. Depending on your itinerary, you may find it easier to drop off your car in a different area. Be aware that there is generally an extra fee for one-way car rentals.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Ankeny?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's useful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most rental car companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost. You may want unlimited miles if you are hitting the open road to explore what else is in Des Moines.
