Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Springfield Enterprise car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you book. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Springfield?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Springfield's minimum age to rent a car?
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Springfield is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Enterprise's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Enterprise rental car should I get for my trip to Springfield?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Springfield. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Springfield are around 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Springfield trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS 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 a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Enterprise car rental?
Enterprise requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Enterprise car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Enterprise rental 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Enterprise. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Springfield has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Illinois has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've had an evening out in Springfield's downtown or gone out downtown. If you are hoping to add a bit excitement to your Springfield trip, you can also head to Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure and spend an afternoon taking on the park's attractions.
Does Springfield Enterprise offer one-way car rentals?
Enterprise offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Enterprise. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
