Advantage's minimum age to rent a car in Oakland is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Advantage's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Advantage rental car should I get for my trip to Oakland?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Oakland. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Oakland average 26 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Oakland trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Advantage. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Advantage rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Advantage.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Oakland has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Oakland. If you are looking to add a dash adventure to your Oakland trip, you can also head to Children's Fairyland and enjoy an evening taking on the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Advantage?
Advantage offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Advantage. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
