How old do you have to be to rent a car in Providence?

Typically, to rent a car in Providence you must be at least 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 over the terms to figure out what the exact price will be before you book your car.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Providence?

Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there may be restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.

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 search for a gas station near the drop-off location
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullThe tank will be full when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling costYou 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 be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehandThere will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your carYou usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station
Empty to emptyYou will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local pricesYou'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip

What fuel policy should I get?

We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Providence?

If you want to check out all that Providence and maybe even the rest of Rhode Island offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Providence. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."

What are some things to do in Providence?

There is tons to see and do in this city. Some of Providence's most popular attractions are:

  • Federal Hill
  • State House
  • RISD Museum
  • Roger Williams Park Zoo

Lucky for you, you'll be able to drive to whichever one you want or see all of them.

Know before you go

Before you begin on your Providence trip, be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should:

  • Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. 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 working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
