The Hertz office at Planet Hollywood was Convenient. Decent hours and the staff were helpful. Getting to the car was a bit of a trek since they are parked at an adjoining mall parking area. Overall a good experience.

Car was a little dirtier than expected, cigarette burn on steering wheel, damaged rear boot insides affecting operation of the soft top, rubbish left in car from previous driver, it was like no one had inspected the car from previous renter. Service from the counter was great and car drove as expected

Their team was so great to work with, they were willing to go the extra mile for our rental and I greatly appreciated working with them. I will definitely look to Enterprise from here on out.

Alex, my contact was great. He got me the car I wanted and brought me back to see if I was ok with the car cause somebody smoked inside it.

The people at enterprise were very nice but could not get me the size vehicle I asked for which was a nissan pathfinder. I even told them I would pay the difference for a bigger vehicle but all they could put me in was a nissan murano. This is a smaller vehicle all together. 1st the tried to give us a Hyundai Santa feed. Even smaller. Had to fight to get the Murano. Also vehicle was not ready at the time.

Compact car rental: all you need to know

Saving money on your next vacation is a top priority? Whether you plan on going for a short road trip with friends or on a week-long getaway with family, a compact car rental is your best bet. CarRentals.com offers huge discounts on a variety of makes and models, so you're sure to find one that fits your traveling needs.

How much does it cost to rent a compact rental car?

It doesn’t have to be costly to rent a car, if you take our advice below:

  • Many people drive down to their local car rental agency and rent a car right on the spot without doing any comparison shopping. Use CarRentals.com to compare rates from different agencies, and you’ll save both time and money;
  • Book in advance - booking your car at the last minute will mean much higher prices;
  • Being informed about how much mileage and fuel you’ll need, so you can adequately filter your search.

What kind of car is a compact?

A compact rental car offers more value than many other types of vehicles. Smaller engines and lighter weight combine for better fuel economy while still offering enough room to pack in your entire family. Most of the small, compact rental car types come with affordable prices that many other car types can't beat.

Some of the vehicles you could find available to rent include:

  • Nissan Versa Note
  • Ford Focus
  • Fiat 500L or similar vehicles

Please have in mind, that you can only book a category, not a specific model.

How old do I have to be to rent a compact car rental?

The general rule is that drivers must be aged 25-65 to rent a car, but it’s worth asking your chosen rental company for their terms and conditions, since age restrictions can differ between suppliers. It could be that, if you’re outside the age bracket, you can still rent if you pay a surcharge.

Do I need insurance for renting a compact car?

Yes, you’ll need to be insured before driving the car, and will need to show proof of coverage if your rental policy doesn’t include insurance. In the U.S., your own car insurance or credit card insurance may suffice. The rates on the website don’t include insurance but, as a U.S. Citizen, you can purchase insurance through CarRentals.com.

To rent a car in some countries, like Mexico, you will have to buy local insurance on top of your standard one.

What do I need to bring when picking up my compact car?

On arrival, you’ll need your driver’s license, insurance, and the credit card you used to book. Another form of ID may be required, so bring your passport, too.

Is it possible to rent a compact car one-way?

Usually, yes, though sometimes not when crossing a border. A surcharge may apply for one-way rentals, so please contact the car rental company to find out the feasibility and costs entailed.

What fuel policy is available for a compact rental car?

Usually, a full-to-full fuel policy is provided, which means that you will collect your vehicle with a full tank of gas and you will just need to refill it before returning the rental to its drop-off location.

Should I get unlimited miles with a compact car?

Most prices include an unlimited mileage policy, though some local rental suppliers may have mileage restrictions. Contact your supplier for details of the different options available.

When I rent a compact vehicle can I use a debit card?

Not usually. Debit cards are often not accepted by rental companies, who prefer you to pay using a credit card. Cash, pre-paid cards, and gift cards are also not acceptable forms of payment.

CarRentals.com features cheap deals on compact car rentals that are available from a variety of rental agencies around the world. Whether you need a fuel-saving four-door for your business trip or something affordable to take your college friends on a weekend trip, your answer is here at CarRentals.com.
