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

Typically, the age limit for car rentals in San Marino is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read the rental agreement to figure out what the exact charge will be before you book your vehicle.

Does San Marino require rental car insurance?

When driving around San Marino or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

We usually recommend that you choose 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 San Marino?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over San Marino. You can drive wherever you like without incurring extra charges. Be sure to read your policy to see if there are any limitations.

Tips before you leave the lot

Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • 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
