What age do you have to be to rent a car in Arlington?
Usually, to rent a car in Arlington you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to discover what the exact price will be before you rent your vehicle.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Arlington?
Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it's required, you can just add it at the CarRentals.com 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 your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning the car filled up. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Arlington?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those 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 details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Arlington vacation, check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your car and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
