Do I have to be a certain age to rent a car in Oak Forest?

Also note, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles. Confirm the car rental company's policy before you book.

Does the U.S.A. require car insurance?

The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage with the car rental company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the rental company's policy before you decide.

Am I required to fill my tank before I return my rental car back?

We encourage a "full-to-full" policy. You receive the car with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, you should find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do any Oak Forest providers allow one-way?

Most rental car companies offer one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your car in a different city. Be aware that there is usually an extra fee for choosing a one-way car rental. Make sure to check the supplier's policy to know exactly how much it may cost you.

The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of the bundle. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most car rental suppliers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package you could face additional cost.
