All renters and additional drivers must be 18 or older, have a valid driver's license and a major credit card in their name. Driver's licenses are accepted from any USA state or territory, from a Canadian province or from an international country. Licenses from outside the USA or Canada also may require an international driver's permit. International driver's permits are valid only if presented with the original local license. International renters require a valid passport; the name on the passport must match the name on the driver's license. Individuals with learner's permits are not eligible to rent. U.S. government employees ages 18 or older will not incur a young driver surcharge when renting for authorized government travel.

The underage surcharge for drivers between the ages of 18 and 20 is $50 per day. The underage surcharge for drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 is $20 per day.

Credit cards are required at time of rental. The renter's name and address must match their driver's license. We apologize, but bank cards are not an acceptable form of payment at this time.



For first-time renters, customer must show proof of collision coverage on their own personal policy to be eligible to rent. This can be provided by showing your coverage's on the declaration page of your personal auto-insurance policy. We're sorry, but liability coverage only does not meet our requirements at this time.

A deposit of either an additional $100 more than the cost of the rental or $300 total, whichever is greater, will be taken at the time of rental pickup. The deposit funds will not be available for use until after the vehicle has been returned. Cash is not an acceptable form of rental deposit. Choice Car Rental is not responsible for any overdraft fees incurred.



We are insurance experts at Choice Car Rental. If your vehicle is being repaired and you have rental car coverage on your policy, we can most often bill your insurance company directly, leaving you with little to zero cost up front. If you choose to have your vehicle repaired (collision damage) with our parent company, Sprague's Collision Center, we can offer you additional discounts.

Additional drivers must meet same rental qualifications as the renter, except spouse or domestic partner. Additional drivers must appear at the rental counter with the primary renter. There will be an additional charge of $3 per day for each additional authorized driver other than a spouse or domestic partner, unless other contractual conditions apply. There is a limit of one additional driver per rental contract. Additional drivers must be 18 or older.
