Usually, to rent a car in Dale you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read the supplier's terms to discover any additional charges will be before you book your rental.

Does Dale require rental car insurance?

You may be able to buy interim insurance through the rental agency. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Many rental car suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Dale.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.

Tips before you leave the lot

Be sure you check a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
