What you need to know before you go

We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Birmingham?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham?
Most suppliers in Birmingham set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to read through Dollar's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Dollar rental car should I get for my trip to Birmingham?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Birmingham. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Birmingham getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Dollar. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?
Dollar requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Birmingham. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Dollar rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Dollar. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Birmingham?
Birmingham has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Alabama has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Birmingham.
Does Birmingham Dollar offer one-way car rentals?
Dollar typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Dollar. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
