How old do you have to be to rent a car in Birmingham?

Typically, to rent a car in Birmingham you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to figure out what the total will be before you reserve your rental.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Birmingham?

Insurance is mandatory, wherever you're renting a car. However, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Birmingham. Check in advance and, if it is required, you can just include it at checkout.

What is the fuel policy for Birmingham rental cars?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullThe tank will be full when you get your car. 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 costYou 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 fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehandYou won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off locationThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car backYou refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump pricesYou'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car

What fuel policy do you recommend?

We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Birmingham?

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several customers all over Birmingham. You can drive as much as you want and not incur added charges. Review your policy to see if there are any restrictions.

Know before you go

Make sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Walk around the vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
