What age do you have to be to rent a car in Chelyabinsk?
Usually, to rent a car in Chelyabinsk you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find what the total will be before you rent your car.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Chelyabinsk?
When cruising through Chelyabinsk or the rest of country, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip.
The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Chelyabinsk.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Chelyabinsk?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Chelyabinsk. You can cruise wherever you want without incurring additional charges. Review your policy to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Chelyabinsk adventure. It's important to:
- Inspect your vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
