Car rentals in Hartford: All you need to know

A Hartford car rental allows you to go where you want, when you want. You'll be able to explore all the sights, and even find out what the rest of Connecticut has to offer. CarRentals.com has collected your most frequently asked questions about car rentals in Hartford. Find out which vehicle is perfect for your trip, and how to get the best rates.

How can I get a bargain rental car in Hartford?

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best price. However, you can remember a few things to keep your next rental affordable. You can:

  • Take time to compare vehicle pricing
  • Try to avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which usually are more expensive
  • Determine ahead of time how much mileage/fuel you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

Even a little knowledge can go a long way to getting you the most savings.

What rental suppliers have retailers in Hartford?

From global names like National and Hertz to budget-friendly brands like Economy and Budget, CarRentals.com has some of the best brands in the business. Read through the online reviews to get an idea of which is best for your next trip.

What types and makes of rental cars are on offer in Hartford?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Hartford. If you're having a little trouble choosing, be sure to look over our chart below. We've compared the most popular vehicle categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory Includes
LuxuryWhen you deserve the bestInfiniti, Mercedes Benz, or similar
SUV or MinivanLarge groups who want to navigate Hartford togetherJeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Quest, or similar
HybridThose that want a quiet and comfortable rideBMW i3, Toyota Prius, or similar

What's the age requirement to rent a car in Hartford?

Typically, to rent a car in Hartford you must be at least 21. However, there might be an added charge if you're under the age of 25 or for larger or higher category vehicles. Go over the supplier's terms to determine what the exact price will be before you reserve your rental.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Hartford?

Insurance is always needed, wherever 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 have to add it to your booking for Hartford. Check ahead of time and, if it is necessary, you can easily include it at checkout.

What is the difference between all the 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 find a gas station close to the drop-off location
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullYou'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra feesYou only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need 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 pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuelYou won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off locationYou might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local pricesYou'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car

What fuel policy should I get?

We usually suggest that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.

Tips before you leave the lot

Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Inspect the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it 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 windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new region
