What should be considered when returning the rental car in San Francisco?


Plan enough buffer time for the return of the rental car. Depending on the selected tank regulation, you must fill up the rental car accordingly. In principle, we always recommend the fair tank regulation full/full. With this you return the rented car with the same fuel level as you picked it up. To do this, simply go to the nearest gas station at your car rental. When returning the rental car, the car rental company will inspect the condition and fuel level. If everything agrees with the time of the rental, the retained deposit will be released to you again.

From what age can I book a rental car in San Francisco?


With many car rental providers you can already book a rental car at the age of 21. Simply enter the age in the search mask and look forward to an exciting trip with your friends through San Francisco. For drivers under 25 years, there is usually a so-called "young driver fee", which is already included in the displayed rental price. You do not have to pay any additional fees for this on site. You can find more information in the rental conditions.

Can I cancel a rental car free of charge?


You can cancel any booking free of charge up to 24 hours before the start of the rental. So if your travel plans change at short notice, you are on the safe side. Please note the opening hours of our service team for this.
