Usually, to rent a car in Poland 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 discover what the exact fee is before you book your rental.

Insurance is required, wherever you're renting a car. However, you might already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, those policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it is necessary, you can simply include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What are the different 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 close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Poland trip, check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around the vehicle and be certain there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
