Normally, to rent a car in Huntington Woods you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to figure out what the exact rate will be before you book your rental.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Huntington Woods?
When cruising through Huntington Woods or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
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 need to find a 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 car. You can use as much fuel as you need 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 fees||You 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 refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Huntington Woods and maybe even the rest of Michigan offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Before you get started on your Huntington Woods adventure, go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Walk around your vehicle and make certain there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- 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 radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
