Car rentals in Burlingame, San Francisco: What you need to know

Whether you are in Burlingame on business or to check out the sights, having the option to go where you want to go, when you need to is key to a wonderful trip. Using Burlingame buses may be a cheap method to see this neighborhood, but if you want to get to a different area of San Francisco, you might be left waiting for a while. Ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft, or taxis can be faster, but if you are going to check out as much as you can in San Francisco, the cost can really add up. Moreover, they may not be immediately available.

If you want to get the most out of your trip to Burlingame, then being able to jump behind the wheel of your own car is the best way to go everywhere you want to go. We can help you book an affordable rate and the car of your choosing. Check out our tips to find out everything you need about renting a car in Burlingame.

  • Check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise expenses
  • Book your rental as far in advance as possible
  • Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs if possible; they tend to be pricier
  • Compare weekly and daily rates; you may save more with a longer rental

Make sure you understand the rental policy before you reserve your vehicle.

What kind of vehicle should I rent while in Burlingame?

With a number of vehicles to decide from, it can be difficult to decide which type is ideal for your trip. However, consider your needs and how many you're driving with. Look at the table below to help you choose what vehicle is the best one for you.

Do I have to be a certain age to rent a car in Burlingame?

The youngest age to rent an automobile in most cities, like Burlingame, San Francisco, is 21. Be aware that there is usually an added charge for anyone under 25. Check with the rental car company before you book. Also note, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles.

Does the U.S.A. require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in United States of America. You might also be able to buy additional insurance through the supplier for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through United States of America.

Many major credit cards provide coverage on your rental car. However, there are normally limits on what they will cover. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check the credit card company's policy before you decide. You can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout if you are a U.S. citizen.

Am I required to fill my tank before I return my rental car back?

We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to the supplier.

Do any Burlingame suppliers offer one-way?

A lot of rental car companies offer one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your car in a different area. Be aware that there is typically an additional fee for one-way drop offs.

Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Burlingame?

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it is part of the package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most car rental companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement you could face additional cost. You may need to get unlimited miles if you're hitting the open road to see what else is in San Francisco.
