Can I return the car in a different place?
If it is agreed with the agency, this will not be a problem. It is likely that you have to pay a little more for this, unless we offer to return the car nearby an area in which the agency needs more vehicles due to tourist convenience.
Do car rental agencies rent car seats for babies?
Of course they do. All agencies offer us seats for babies and children. In some states these car seats are necessary by law and no baby can travel without them. Therefore, renting these seats is very common and generally cheap (about $2 to $10 per day).
Can I rent a car by debit card?
Generally, yes. Few agencies refuse to use this method of payment. It is important to notice whether you have a credit card or a debit card. Many times we do not know or we are mistaken about it: it is a good idea to call the telephone number on them to consult and clarify our doubts.
Can I rent a car if I am under 25?
Sometimes this is not possible, but in most cases there is no problem if the client is over 21. In special cases, like government employees, military men or employees of certain companies with commercial agreements, an 18-year-old person can rent a car.
Do I have to accept the insurance offered by agencies?
This insurance is truly expensive even though it may be pretty good. The insurance provided by credit cards is not expensive but it is not a very good one. The best option is to make our own insurance cover the car we rent.
Can anyone else drive the car?
Yes, as long as this person is put on the list of additional drivers and have been authorized by the agency. To do so, this person has to fulfill the same requirements than the person who rents the car and he should have a driver’s license. Under no circumstances can a car be driven by someone that is not authorized to do so, unless it is a matter of life and death, such as an accident in which your health is put in danger. If the driver is not authorized to drive, the police can arrest him.
Do I always have to return the car personally?
No, some hotels offer a service to return the car for you. You can also inform the agency that you are sending someone else to return it. In both cases, you always have to ask for the agency’s authorization, since if an accident occurs, you will be covered.
