How to Rent a Car: First Time Renters

If you are a teenager who just got their license and want to rent a car for the weekend you might well be out of luck. Most car rental agencies require that the driver is 21 years of age, some require that the driver is at least 25. So first, check with different rental agencies and see what the age requirement is. Also keep in mind that if you are between 21-24 years old, you may be charged a young drivers fee. Make sure to include this into your budget when choosing a rental company. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to go about renting your first vehicle.

Step One Identify who is Driving

If you plan on using your own insurance, contact your insurance company or review your coverage statement to ensure that rentals are covered under your plan. It would also be a good idea to bring a copy of your policy with you to the rental agency. They may ask to make a photo copy of it. If you choose to buy insurance from the rental company, don t be stingy. It may cost more, but the peace of mind knowing you are financially covered if something were to happen will let you enjoy your rental all the more.
