Top tips for renting a car in Martha's Vineyard

  • It’s a requirement that every passenger in the vehicle wears a seatbelt in Martha’s Vineyard. Children under eight or less than 57 inches tall need to be in a proper child restraint system, secured and fastened as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Those below five should be in a child safety seat, while those between five and eight need to be in a booster seat. All rental cars booked through KAYAK have functioning seatbelts, and if you need a booster or car seat, you can rent one from the rental counter.
  • Various payment methods are accepted at Martha’s Vineyard car rentals. You can either pay by credit, debit or cash. The rental agencies prefer credit card payment, however, and VISA, American Express, MasterCard, and Discover Network Cards are accepted at most car rental locations in Martha’s Vineyard. Debit cards with VISA and MasterCard logos will be accepted, but you need to be at least twenty five to pay for a rental with a debit card. Cash cannot be used to place a deposit but will be accepted when clearing any balances at the end of your rental period. You will also need your driver’s license for identification purposes.
  • Most rental agencies in Martha’s Vineyard offer three rental policies: they refuel, you refuel, or you prepay for fuel. The second is the best option since it will help you save some money. Most agencies usually charge a higher price per gallon, and if they refuel, it will be very costly. However, you filling up at a gas station near the drop-off location means that you’ll return the rental car with a full tank and avoid the extra charges. You can also prepay for gas and return the rental car empty, but note that there are no refunds if you return the vehicle with unused gas.
