Usually, the age limit for renting a car in Plymouth is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read the rental agreement to figure out what the exact rate will be before you book your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Plymouth?
When driving in Plymouth or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the United States. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Plymouth.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees 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. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Plymouth?
If you want to see all that Plymouth and maybe even the rest of New Hampshire offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to make certain they are actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
