What age do you have to be to rent a car in West Monroe?
Generally, to rent a car in West Monroe you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to figure out what the total is before you book your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in West Monroe?
Insurance is mandatory, no matter where you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it's required, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
Are there 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 near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several customers all over West Monroe. You can cruise as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Review your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your West Monroe trip, go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- 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 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
