Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Des Moines Advantage car rental?

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Des Moines?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Des Moines's minimum age to rent a car?
Advantage's minimum age to rent a car in Des Moines is 21. Take time to review Advantage's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Advantage rental car should I get for my trip to Des Moines?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Des Moines. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Des Moines average 28 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Des Moines trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Des Moines. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Advantage car rental?
Advantage requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Advantage will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Des Moines. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Advantage car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Advantage. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Des Moines has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Iowa has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Des Moines.
