Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Birmingham Dollar car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Birmingham?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham?
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham is 18. Take time to read through Dollar's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Birmingham?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Birmingham. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Birmingham getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United Kingdom?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Dollar In the United Kingdom. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Birmingham. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Dollar?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Dollar rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Dollar.

Birmingham definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
