How old must I be to rent a car from American Eagle?
American Eagle is quite flexible in that they accept drivers under the age of 25. That said, young drivers will likely have to pay a daily surcharge.
Can I add additional drivers?
It shouldn’t be a problem to add additional drivers to a policy with American Eagle, although possible daily surcharges for doing so may crank up the cost of your rental policy.
And what about mileage?
If you’re keen to venture far and wide, it’s worth asking for unlimited mileage. This gives you the freedom to explore without having to worry about per-mile fees – though you should always remember to check whether your policy places any other restrictions on your adventures.
How do I pay for fuel at American Eagle?
Most drivers find the simplest way to pay for fuel is to adopt a full-to-full approach. All this means is that you’ll be given a full tank of fuel on collection day and you’ll need to return the car the same way. Other fuel options may be available.
What’s the fleet like at American Eagle?
It’s pretty good. The company rents out well-maintained cars in all sizes, from compact to full size, as well as a selection of 12- and 15-seat passenger vans for larger groups. Additionally, cargo vans and trucks are available.
What documents will I need?
On collection day, you should present your driver’s license and credit card. You’ll also need to prove you have adequate insurance in place on one of your existing car or credit card policies. If you find yourself without appropriate insurance, you can easily add cover to any booking on CarRentals.com.
What sort of vehicle should I rent?
Your budget and group size will likely be the biggest factors when deciding which model will suit you best, though there are other things to consider, of course. The following tips can help you determine which model might be your ideal ride:
|Car Type||Best for||Category includes|
|Economy||A budget-friendly pick for drivers who want to get from A to B cheaply||Chevrolet Spark, Vauxhall Corsa, or similar|
|Full-size||A roomy choice for families or groups on the move in Orange County||Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, or similar|
|Minivan||A great choice for larger groups who want to explore together||Ford E-350, Chevrolet Express, or similar|
A quick peek into American Eagle’s history
Family owned and operated, American Eagle has rented cars from its headquarters in a Costa Mesa hotel for more than a quarter of a century – with much of that time spent trading under its present name of American Eagle. Over the years, the company has expanded both its fleet and its service to customers by partnering with a U-Haul Truck Center.
