What age do you have to be to rent a car in Union?
Typically, to rent a car in Union 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 rental agreement to find what the total will be before you book your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Union?
When cruising through Union or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require driver's 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 you while traveling through the United States. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before 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 go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Union and maybe even the rest of Oregon offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you get going on your Union vacation, check a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any dents 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
- Familiarize yourself with the 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). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
