What is required to rent a car?
You must have a valid driver’s license and credit or debit card. We may, at our discretion, verify your license validity through an automated DMV connection. We are unable to accept paper ‘license renewals’ without an accompanying expired license.
Is a deposit required to rent?
Yes. Like all rental car companies, we require a security deposit. Our standard deposit is $250.00.
How much are your rentals?
Please use the online reservation/booking system to generate a price quote for the vehicle class and dates of your choosing. This will provide you with the most up-to-date pricing and allow you to see any applicable discounts that may apply, such as seasonal savings or promotions.
Are there any other fees?
Yes, there is a 9% Vermont use tax added to all rentals. Additionally, deliveries outside of Rutland County are subject to delivery fees and there is a $20 application fee for cash/debit card renters.
If you don’t have your own comprehensive-with-collision (full coverage) insurance, you will need to buy ours at $20 per day.
Do you offer contact-less rentals?
We were contact-free before it was cool! As much as we’d love to meet you, the fact is you have better things to do than hang out with rental car people! After your booking, we will arrange everything with you by email/chat/phone and when you arrive at your pickup location the car will be waiting for you. Same thing when you drop it off. You will simply park it, lock the doors, and walk away. This saves you significant time and keeps you safe.
The other option is to have VermontRentalCars.com staff meet you for the vehicle delivery, or pick up the vehicle at one of our fixed locations.

Do you offer rentals in New York?
Vermont Rental Cars offers rentals at Saranac Lake Airport in the Adirondack Mountains through our sister company AdirondackRentalCars.com. Additionally, we can deliver vehicles to New York including the Albany Airport.
Do you offer rentals in Lake Placid?
Adirondack Rental Cars no longer offers rental cars in Lake Placid. However, rentals are available nearby at the Adirondack Regional Airport. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We were forced to end operations in Lake Placid following a decision by the City of Lake Placid to require Adirondack Rental Cars to undergo an expensive and time consuming process if we wished to continue to offer cars at Lake Placid Airport. Due to the low volume at this location, we have decided to remove all vehicles from the city at this time.
