    renting cars

    Discussion started by --zeSto-- - Aug 21, 2003

    turning to the vast knoledge pool of the collective 12oz mindset....

    So a friend is coming into town and I need to rent a car.
    Here's the issue... most places have an age requirement of
    25 years but I'm a few months shy of that. Will places still rent to me?

    I'm going to call up some of the local dealers tonight and figure
    out the terms, or should I maybe get dressed in my finest work
    attire and just go cold-call the shops. I've never rented a car on
    my name before and I'd like to hear any stories tips etc.

    or if anyone in my area wants to just let me borrow their ride....
    (convertible prefered) Drop me a line.

    I have found a few places that will rent one to you even if you are not 25 yet. The only down fall to it is that they charge you more for the rental.

    i woulda thought you could rent cars and moose in canada at like 14 or something.

    i'm pretty sure you can rent cars under 25 but you might have to pay some higher insurance.

    I figured it would just work out to an increased insurance premium.
    no biggie.

    but I'm hoping someone in here knows a few tricks to get the dealer
    to give me a break. last time I was involved with the renting of a car,
    it was with a lingerie model so all the dealers were bending over backwards to help us out.

    I however... am no lingerie model.

    My car got totalled back before I was 25. The insurance company gave me a rental allowance for a car, but nobody would rent me a car. My parents ended up letting me borrow their car, while they got to drive my bling bling rental. I'm still bitter about that. 25 seems a little excessive age wise as far as renting a car goes. At least you can rent one now...those fuckers wouldn't budge when I needed one.

    so it's more money eh guys ?

    I hear you SA on how they can screw over people based
    on age even when it's out of context. Luckily my record up
    here is clean. No parking tickets, no speeding... nothing.
    I've got a few outstandings in texas and new mexico... but forget that.

    I know one of the local dealers rents this...

    I hear the Sebrings are actually nice.

    too bad you can't rent one of these:

    or perhaps one of these:

    and yeah...my record is clean as a whistle. $250 a pop to get out of my normal (15 over) tickets. I've been pulled over a lot.

    So here's the poop scoop.

    I'm renting a midsized car (Sebring, Taurus or Malibu) and
    because I'm 24 and one year too young, they will charge me
    and extra $10 per day + a $500 deductable on my credit card.

    and they said they'd rent to anyone with a full drivers licence
    and a credit card in their name. Wild... I would have been renting
    cars at 17 if I knew it was that easy!

    oh wait... no cd player, no deal!
