Do I have to be a certain age to rent a car in Downey?

In most areas, you can rent an automobile in Los Angeles if you're at least 21. Be aware that most car rental suppliers will charge an added fee if you are younger than 25. Make sure to review the supplier's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?

Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the car rental company. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Downey.

What fuel policy should I go for in Downey?

We suggest a "full-to-full" policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, you'll want to fill up your tank before you bring it back.

Most car rental providers offer one-way rentals. It may be more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Be aware that there is usually an additional fee for one-way drop offs.
