Read some so-so reviews online and was quite hesitant to book with AVR but had no other options. Van wasn’t ready (was missing seats and didn’t have gas) and the entire process seemed disorganized and a bit sketchy. Van did the job and the trip was great, though!

Everything was quick and friendly. SFO isn't the easiest airport when it comes to rental cars and Dollar made it all that much easier. Only complaint: the interior of the car could have been a bit cleaner.

No signs by the airport to lead you to find the site. Was given a minivan which was a gas guzzler when then ran out of the SUV that I requested. I was solo traveller.

Difficult to close the trunk due to a loose rubber seal around the edges. The seal could not be fastened. Several scratches on the car, but overall good value for the money.

Economy car rental: All you need to know

If you're the type of person who is always looking for a deal and you are currently shopping for a car rental on a tight budget, an economy rental car is perfect for you. Economy vehicles come with fuel efficient four-cylinder engines that allow drivers to save more money at the pump. If you're stuck between renting a full-size sedan and a compact vehicle, book an economy car rental through CarRentals.com.

How much does it cost to rent an economy rental car?

There are several ways in which you can ensure you’re getting the best rates on your rental, including:

  • Comparing various rates and vehicles side-by-side to see which one fits your budgetary needs. CarRentals.com maintains relationships with dozens of agencies worldwide, enabling customers to view hundreds of quotes at one time;
  • Booking in advance - booking a rental at the last minute could cost you hundreds of dollars;
  • Being informed and realistic about what you need from a rental, such as the amount of mileage and fuel.

What kind of car is an economy?

Economy rentals are perfect for individuals or families who are looking for great deals on vehicles, regardless of their vacation destination. Economy cars offer enough room for the entire family yet come with the fuel efficiency of a compact vehicle. Whether you plan on taking the family to a relative's house or need to rent a car at your destination airport during a business trip, an economy car rental is the way to go.

Some of the vehicles that you may be able to rent include:

  • Chevrolet Spark
  • Toyota Yaris
  • Vauxhall Corsa or similar vehicles

Don't forget you can only book a category, not a car model.

How old do I have to be to rent an economy car rental?

Some companies require that drivers be at least 25 and under 65, though age restrictions tend to differ by car rental company and car type (bigger cars may have a higher age restriction). Drivers under or over the age restriction may be required to pay an additional fee or buy additional insurance in order to rent a vehicle.

Do I need insurance for renting an economy car?

Yes. The rental must be insured before you take it out on the road. Outside of the U.S., if the rental policy does not include insurance, the rental company will request proof of coverage or ask that you buy insurance directly from them. If you’re renting a vehicle in certain countries, like Mexico, you will have to buy additional local insurance.

In the U.S., your own car insurance or credit card insurance may cover you. The rates displayed for rentals on the U.S. website don’t include insurance, but if you’re a U.S. Citizen, you can purchase insurance at CarRentals.com checkout.

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

Don’t forget your driver’s license, insurance, and the credit card used to make your booking. Additional proof of ID may be required by the car rental company, so make sure you check the car rental company’s terms and conditions.

Is it possible to rent an economy car one-way?

Yes, one-way rentals are available. Restrictions and additional fees may apply and cross-border one-way rentals may be forbidden in some locations; contact your chosen car rental company to find out the cost of collecting and returning the vehicle at different locations.

What fuel policy is available for an economy rental car?

Among the hundreds of affordable vehicles listed on CarRentals.com, fuel-efficient hybrids will save you the most in fuel costs. Plus, with a full-to-full fuel policy, you will set off in your vehicle with a full tank, so it’s perfect for long road trips and weekend getaways alike. Remember to refill the tank before returning the rental to avoid additional costs.

Should I get unlimited miles with an economy car?

Most prices quoted on the site include unlimited mileage, which is perfect if you’re planning lots of driving, but local renters may have mileage restrictions, so check in advance.

When I rent an economy vehicle can I use a debit card?

You should aim to use a credit card when making a reservation, as debit cards are not widely accepted by rental car companies.

Cash, pre-paid cards, and gift cards are likewise not accepted for any reservation.
