The Car Rental Selection Tool below features the base rates, payment options, minimum rental ages, and rental options at many major U.S. car rental companies. To help you find the rental options you’re looking for — or the best available prices — you can sort the table by any one of these categories by clicking the arrow icons at the top of each column.
To compile this information, we conducted test bookings from each rental company and contacted their customer service departments. Our test bookings included a car, an SUV or van, and a luxury vehicle (where available) from car rental locations in California, Florida, New York, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Utah.
Note that rental rates are subject to change at any time and vary depending on location, booking length, booking dates, and vehicle type. Your rates may not exactly match the range listed in our selection tool, and you will usually receive a lower base rate if you pay for your rental in advance. Additionally, rental policies may vary by location; for example, some locations may restrict one-way rentals.
You can get a real-time comparison of rates from most of the major rental car companies (excluding peer-to-peer rental companies) for a specific trip by entering your intended rental details at Expedia.
