Car rentals in Elmhurst, New York: What you need to know

Whether you are in Elmhurst on business or to check out the sights, having the option to go anywhere you want can help make your trip all the better. Using Elmhurst public transportation may be an inexpensive way to check out this neighborhood, but if you want to get to another part of New York, you could be left waiting a long time. Taxis and ridesharing, like Lyft or Uber, can be faster, but if you are going all over New York, the cost can really add up. Additionally, they may not be immediately available.

If you want to make the most from your trip to Elmhurst, then booking a car rental is the best way to make sure you have time to go everywhere you need to go during your stay. CarRentals.com can help you get an affordable price and the car of your choice. Check out the information below to learn all that you need to know about renting a car in Elmhurst.

Frequently asked questions

What's the best way to get an inexpensive rental car in Elmhurst?

  • Check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees
  • Reserve your car rental as far in advance as you can
  • Avoid airport pick-ups or drop-offs if possible; they tend to be more expensive
  • Compare weekly and daily rates; you might save more if you rent the car for longer

Read the supplier's policy so you can determine the actual cost before you book.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Elmhurst?

The minimum age to rent a vehicle in most cities, like Elmhurst, New York, is 21. However, there is usually an additional charge if you or the added driver are under 25. Check the company's policy before you book. Moreover, if you plan to rent a higher category vehicle (premium, large capacity, SUV, etc.) there may be different age restrictions.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the U.S. of A.?

Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the supplier's policy before you decide.

Do I need to return my car rental with a full tank?

Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing it back with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, you should find a gas station before you return the car.

Can I book a one-way rental in Elmhurst?

Most car rental providers offer one-way rentals. Depending on your itinerary, you may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle in a different city. Keep in mind that there is generally an extra fee for choosing a one-way drop off.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Elmhurst?

The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it's part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips ahead of time. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost. You may need to get unlimited miles if you're hitting the open road to discover all that is in New York.
