Top tips for renting a car in Wisconsin

  • If you’re planning to rent a car while vacationing with family and friends, it’s best to choose one or two designated drivers, since many car-rental companies in Wisconsin charge a daily fee for each additional driver they register. The fee applies even if the person never gets behind the wheel. If you’re renting a car in Wisconsin, you should double-check about this policy with your car-rental company of choice; some car-rental agencies waive the fee if the additional driver is a spouse.
  • Before renting a car, you should shop around for car insurance. Most rental companies in Wisconsin provide their clients with suitable car insurance policies; however, not every insurance policy suits every person the same. Before you choose any car insurance, you should make sure you thoroughly understand the terms first. Purchasing rental coverage from your personal vehicle insurance company is a great option, since you will have an already-established relationship with them. It’s worth noting that with rental insurance from your personal vehicle insurance company, you can be more confident that you’re getting good value for your money.
  • There are over twenty car-rental locations in Wisconsin, and these do not include the car-rental facilities located at airports. Therefore, finding satisfactory rental cars shouldn’t be too stressful a task. If you’re visiting the state and arriving via plane, consider renting a car from an airport car-rental facility. This is a convenient option because you’ll be able to return the car right before your return flight. Many people love the convenience of arriving at the airport and getting a rental car as soon as they arrive in Wisconsin. If you choose this option, you’ll be able to drive away from the airport with all your luggage safely in the trunk of your rental car.
  • To legally rent a car in Wisconsin, a person must present a valid driver’s license with expiration date at least six months after the rental period. In lieu of driver’s license, it might be possible to present other forms of photo ID. If paying with credit card, your card must be from a recognized bank. Photo ID and payment information must be presented at the car-rental company when the driver picks up the car.
