How old do you have to be to rent a car in Jerome?
Typically, to rent a car in Jerome you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find what the exact charge is before you rent your car.
Does Jerome require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. With 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 might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it is required, you can just include it at checkout.
Are there 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 search for a 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 pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car companies provide you a full to full tank policy. We recommend returning your car topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Jerome?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Jerome. You can drive wherever you like without incurring extra charges. Review your rental agreement to see if there are any restrictions.
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Jerome adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and make certain there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
