How old do you have to be to rent a car in Arlington?
Normally, the age limit for car rentals in Arlington is 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 read over the rental agreement to find any additional fees will be before you rent your car.
Does Arlington require rental car insurance?
Insurance is mandatory, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it is necessary, you can conveniently add it at checkout.
What is the fuel policy for Arlington rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Arlington and maybe even the rest of Colorado offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to make certain they are actually "unlimited."
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Arlington adventure. It's important to:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
