Generally, to rent a car in Templeton you must be at least 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 go over the rental agreement to discover what the total will be before you book your car.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Templeton?
Insurance is mandatory, no matter where you rent a vehicle. Nevertheless, you might already be insured by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's needed, you can simply include it at 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 search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the vehicle. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Templeton?
If you want to explore all that Templeton and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Before you get going on your Templeton adventure, be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on the 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 to your liking, and figure out 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
