Tips for Delta Passengers Renting Cars
Delta car rentals are available to drivers at least 25 years of age. Your car hire provider may offer underage driver options, which vary from country to country. Generally speaking, the absolute minimum age to rent a car is 21 — with exceptions in a handful of locations. Either way, drivers under 25 can expect to pay more and have a limited selection of cars to choose from.
You can avoid after-the-fact surcharges by reading the terms and conditions of your car rental agreement. For instance, you may incur a fee for not driving your vehicle more than 45 km (75 mi).
A credit card is required to cover the deductible of the Collision/ Loss Damage Waiver (CDW/LDW) and must be presented at the time of rental.
It’s always a smart decision to discuss your travel plans with the car hire provider, particularly if you’re planning to cross international borders, which carry restrictions in some locations, and may require a fee. Likewise, traveling to remote areas or driving on certain types of roads may not be allowed.
Unless you catch a special offer, a wide range of charges may not be included at the time of rental, one of which, Theft Protection, may not be necessary. Most credit cards offer duplicate coverage when you use the card to secure a booking. Check with the card issuer to save on your total bill.
Nowadays, offline GPS is a standard feature of car rentals. Likewise, many mobile wireless carriers offer unlimited international roaming. You could save money by using your phone as a navigational device, or, it might be more economical to pay for online GPS with your car hire provider.
