What's the age requirement to rent a car in Norwood?
Usually, to rent a car in Norwood 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 review the rental agreement to find what the total is before you rent your vehicle.
Does Norwood require rental car insurance?
Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will cover your car rental. However, there may be limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles such as premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Norwood.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. Use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask 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||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the 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?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Tips before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot on your Norwood adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine 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
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
