Also note, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles. Check the company's policy before you book.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car?

Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance with the car rental company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Most rental car companies give you a full tank at the time of your pick up. We advise bringing your car back with the same amount as you received it. To avoid any added expenses, you'll want to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Keep in mind that there is typically an additional fee for one-way car rentals. Make sure to go through the provider's policy to know exactly how much it may cost you.

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of your package. It's important to think about how many miles you will be driving on your trip to South Pasadena. You don't want to be surprised with any overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure to go through the supplier's policy.
