- Browsing through lots of premium rental cars and choosing a set of wheels that best suits your needs at the best price;

What kind of car is a premium?
Whether you need a great car for your weekend getaway or are planning a business trip with coworkers, a premium car rental can get you where you need to go in style. Premium cars have a variety of excellent features other rentals don't come with. These features may include a navigation system, heated leather seats, advanced wheel controls, a voice activation system, and more.
Cars that fall under the premium category include:
- Chrysler 300
- Hyundai Genesis
- Dodge Charger and other similar cars
Keep in mind that you are always renting a car category where you get a car model or a similar vehicle, though.
How old do I have to be to rent a premium car rental?
For some companies, drivers must be at least 25, but age restrictions differ by rental company and car type. Drivers under 25 may be required to pay an additional fee to rent a vehicle.
Do I need insurance for renting a premium car?
Yes. Outside of the U.S., the rental company will request proof of coverage or ask that you buy insurance directly from them if your rental policy doesn’t already include insurance. For renting in certain countries (like Mexico), you will need to buy additional insurance.
In the U.S., your own car or credit card insurance may cover car rental. The rental rates shown on the website don’t include insurance, but U.S. citizens can purchase insurance at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What do I need to bring when picking up my premium car?
To collect your car without any problems, bring your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and your credit card for the booking. Check the rental company’s T&Cs, in case any additional proof of ID is required.
Is it possible to rent a premium car one-way?
Sure, one-way rentals are possible. Restrictions and additional fees may apply, however, and cross-border one-way rentals are often forbidden in certain locations. Your rental company can tell you more about the cost of renting one way.
What fuel policy is available for a premium rental car?
You’ll usually be offered a full-to-full policy, meaning that you’re given your vehicle with a full tank, and will need to simply refill the tank before returning the rental.
Should I get unlimited miles with a premium car?
Most rates on the website cover unlimited mileage, but local renters may have mileage restrictions, so check before you clock up the miles.
When I rent a premium vehicle can I use a debit card?
We always suggest having a credit card ready when making a reservation, as debit cards are not accepted by most rental car companies. Remember that cash, pre-paid cards, and gift cards are also not accepted forms of payment.
