Make Sure To Do This One Thing Before Your Next Car Rental

One of the most important things to do when renting a car from any company is to register for their frequent renter program. I’ve provided links to each program and what they offer to members in this post. Most importantly, by signing up for programs, you’ll get to give your preferences for questions about insurance coverages and refueling options. You’ll also get to provide your information if you want to earn miles or points in a different program instead of the rental car’s own loyalty program.

By forgetting to update this information in my profile the last time I rented from Dollar, I ended up with 56 points in the Dollar Express program. That’s a mistake I didn’t plan on making again. Continue reading “Make Sure To Do This One Thing Before Your Next Car Rental”

How Old Is Too Old To Rent A Car?

In the United States, you oftentimes have to be at least 25 years old to rent a car. Some car rental companies will rent to people under 25, but chances are those 18-to-24-year-olds will have to pay a surcharge.

But what about those on the other side of the spectrum? Is there a set age that people are deemed to be “too old” to rent a car? And if so, what’s the cutoff?

Well, it depends.
