Typically, to rent a car in Kingston 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 extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read the rental agreement to figure out what the total is before you reserve your rental.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Kingston?
Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage; however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when 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 as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kingston?
If you plan to check out all that Kingston and maybe even the rest of New Hampshire offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
