Generally, the age limit for renting a car in Oyster 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 go through the rental agreement to find what the total will be before you book your rental.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Oyster?
When driving in Oyster or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Oyster rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||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 fuel policy should I get?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Oyster?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Oyster adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your car and make sure there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new region
