What's the age requirement to rent a car in Seminole?
Usually, to rent a car in Seminole you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to figure out what the total is before you reserve your rental.
Does Seminole require rental car insurance?
Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some insurance on your rental; but, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger 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 need to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the 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||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Seminole and maybe even the rest of Florida offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Seminole. Read the fine print to make certain they are truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Seminole vacation, make sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
