Tips : Know before you go
To rent a car you must have a valid driver’s license. If you do not have an American Driver’s License, you can typically use one from your home country, but you may want to consider getting an International Driver’s License that will allow you to rent and drive a motor vehicle in the U.S.
Even if you are ready to pay in cash, your request will be declined. In nearly all cases, you must have a credit card to rent a car in the U.S. It is not only your payment method but also serves as a proof of your identity. Many credit card companies will also include a limited amount of rental car insurance – check with your card issuers in advance to see what types of insurance they may offer.
If you rent a car in the USA, then you can often pick up and drop off your car at different locations for an extra charge. This means that you don’t have to restrict your adventure in any way at all. So whether you are planning to hit Route 66, cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway or even take a coast-to-coast trip, the car hire options are there for you. And if you are looking for a truly rugged adventure, then the Rocky Mountains, Arizona > desert and Alaskan plains are all well worth exploring.
What do I need to hire a car?
-To book your car, all you need is a credit or debit card. When you pick the car up, you’ll need: Your voucher / e-voucher, to show that you’ve paid for the car.
-The main driver’s credit / debit card, with enough available funds for the car’s deposit.
-Each driver’s full, valid driving licence, which they’ve held for at least 12 months (often 24).
-Your passport and any other ID the car hire company needs to see.
-Different car hire companies have different requirements, so please make sure you check the car’s terms and conditions as well.
How old do I have to be to rent a car?
For most car hire companies, the age requirement is between 21 and 70 years old. If you’re under 25 or over 70, you might have to pay an additional fee.
Can I book a hire car for someone else?
Yes, as long as they meet these requirements. Just fill in their details while you’re making the reservation.
How do I find the cheapest car hire deal?
We work with all the major international car hire brands (and lots of smaller local companies) to bring you a huge choice of cars at the very best prices. That’s how we can find you cheap car hire deals at over 60,000 locations worldwide. To compare prices and find your ideal car at an unbeatable price, just use our search form.
What should I look for when I’m choosing a car?
Space: You’ll enjoy your rental far more if you choose a car with plenty of room for your passengers and luggage.
Fuel policy: Not planning on driving much? A Full to Full fuel policy can save you a lot of money.
Location: You can’t beat an ‘on-airport’ pick-up for convenience, but an ‘off-airport’ pick-up with a shuttle bus can be much cheaper.
Are all fees included in the rental price?
The vast majority of our rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees. You’ll pay for any ‘extras’ when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we’ll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs). For more details on what’s included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you’re looking at.
