Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to determine what the total will be before you book your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Youngstown?
When driving around Youngstown or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Youngstown.
What is the fuel policy for Youngstown rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much gas as you like 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before returning the rental car.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Youngstown?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Youngstown. You can cruise wherever you want and not incur additional charges. Read over your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Youngstown vacation, check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over the car and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- 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
