I meant to book my pickup at LAX airport, but booked the wrong address, which was LA downtown. The Japanese counter staff was very nice and helped us to solve our problem by finding a similar budget rate of LAX Avis for us. Not only that, he also explained the insurance liability in details. As tourists from Taiwan, we felt we were taken good care of and knew better about the renting issues. Really enjoyed the service. One little suggestion. If the website can list LAX location, it'll be more convention for tourists like us.

The employees were really busy at the time of pick up and they kept telling me someone would be right with me. We waited 15 minutes and when we received the keys the van was filthy on the inside!

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.
