How old do I have to be to rent a hybrid car?
Usually between 25 and 65 years old, but this can vary with different companies; if you are outside this age bracket, you might still be able to rent one, but you’ll probably need to pay an additional fee or get additional insurance.
Do I need insurance for renting a vehicle?
Yes. The car must be insured before you take it out. Outside of the U.S., if insurance is not included when you purchase your rental, you must show your own proof of coverage or buy insurance from the company. You will have to buy additional local insurance if you’re renting a vehicle in certain countries, including Mexico and Cuba.
In the U.S., your own car insurance or credit card insurance may be all you need so check this with your provider. The rates given on the U.S. website don’t include insurance, but U.S. citizens can purchase insurance at the checkout.
What do I need to bring when picking up my car rental?
You’ll need your driver’s license, proof of insurance coverage and an accepted form of payment in your name. Further proof of ID may be required by the company, so your best bet is to check their terms and conditions before you arrive.
Can I get a one-way rental?
Yes, you can pick up and drop off your hybrid vehicle at different rental locations. Restrictions and additional fees may apply, so it’s worth checking in advance. Cross-border one-way rentals may not be allowed, so contact the company first to check their policy.
What fuel policy is available for a hybrid car rental?
Our full-to-full policy means that you’ll collect the car with a tank full of fuel and you return it full as well, to avoid any additional costs.
Should I get unlimited miles in a hybrid rental?
The prices quoted on our website generally include unlimited mileage, but local renters may have restrictions in place, so check your T&Cs before you set off.
Can I use a debit card to rent a vehicle?
Credit cards are usually preferred, and debit cards not widely accepted. Rental companies that accept debit cards will often ask for additional proof of ID.
Note that reservations cannot be made using cash, pre-paid cards, or gift cards.
