Typically, to rent a car in Jamestown you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read the terms to find what the exact price will be before you book your car.
Does Jamestown require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting 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 policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Jamestown. Check ahead of time and, if it's needed, you can just add it at checkout.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. 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 of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing it back topped off. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Jamestown. You can drive as much as you like and not incur added charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Walk around the car and be sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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 unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
