Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Sarasota Dollar rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Sarasota?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Sarasota?
Most suppliers in Sarasota set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review Dollar's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Sarasota?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Sarasota. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Sarasota are around 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Sarasota vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Sarasota. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?
Dollar does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Sarasota. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Dollar rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Dollar rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Dollar. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Sarasota?
Sarasota's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Sarasota.
Can I get a one-way rental from Dollar?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Dollar. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
