Typically, to rent a car in East Rochester you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find what the exact charge will be before you book your rental.
Is insurance required to rent a car in East Rochester?
When cruising through East Rochester or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the car rental.
