Car Rental Guidelines

Rates for the same-size car can vary widely from company to company with extra costs nearly doubling the basic rental rate. Ask the reservation clerk to calculate the total cost of the rental, including such extras as mileage, insurance, taxes (including airport taxes if the pick-up point is at the airport) and any other charges. Get everything in writing and make sure you have a confirmation numbers. If you plan on extensive driving, get the unlimited mileage rate and watch for extra driver fees, unnecessary insurance coverage, etc.

Ask about special deals. If you're a member of AA, a travel club, a group or association, discounts might be available.

Insurance can cost from $5 to $15 a day. Review your car insurance policy. You might already be covered for a rental car. Some credit card companies offer free coverage to Gold Card holders.

Before picking up the car, make a brief visual inspection for nicks, dents, scratches, etc. If you don't spot them before you drive off, you may be responsible when the car is turned in.

When renting a car, you'll need a valid driver's license, proof of auto insurance and a major credit card. Some companies have a minimum age requirement.
