How old do you have to be to rent a car in Lee?
Generally, the age limit for renting a car in Lee is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read the rental agreement to determine what the exact rate will be before you rent your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Lee?
When driving around Lee or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance with the rental agency. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's 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 have to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary 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 be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many providers provide 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 drop-off 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 won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. We suggest returning it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to see all that Lee and maybe even the rest of Florida offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Lee. Read the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Lee trip, go over a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
