What age do you have to be to rent a car in City?
Generally, to rent a car in City you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to discover what the exact charge will be before you reserve your rental.
Will I need insurance to get a car rental in City?
Insurance is always needed, no matter where you rent a car. That said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it to your booking for City. Check ahead of time and, if it's necessary, you can simply add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We recommend bringing the car back topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over City. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur added charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are any limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your City vacation, check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
