We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Des Moines?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Des Moines's minimum age to rent a car?
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Des Moines is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Enterprise's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Enterprise rental car should I get for my trip to Des Moines?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Des Moines. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Des Moines average 28 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle 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 little luxury on their Des Moines getaway can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. 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 Enterprise car rental?
Enterprise does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Des Moines. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Enterprise?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Enterprise.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Des Moines has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Iowa has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Des Moines.
Can I get a one-way rental from Enterprise?
Enterprise offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
