How old do you have to be to rent a car in Wilmington?
The youngest age you can rent a car in Wilmington is 21. An extra fee for young drivers usually applies, so check before you book and factor in any additional costs. There could also be restrictions on the categories of vehicles available to young drivers. For example, some companies will only rent out small and medium-sized cars to young motorists. Rules may vary between outlets, so look over the fine print.
What do you need to rent a car in Wilmington?
Most rental companies will ask for these two things — a current driver’s license and credit card. If you choose to opt out of the provider’s insurance plan, proof of your own coverage may also be needed. Read your policy so you know what to bring when it’s time to pick up the keys.

Based on prices found over the past seven days, you could’ve sat in the driver’s seat of your own rental car for just $30 per day. The second lowest daily rate in Wilmington was $31.

You can, and the great news is providers often offer lower rates the longer your rental term. Check out our long-term car rental deals in Wilmington and drive away with a serious bargain.
Where can I find a Wilmington car rental if I am younger than 25?
This will depend on the car rental companies located in Wilmington. They often have different policies when it comes to minimum ages. If you’ve found a supplier that does cater to drivers under 25 years of age, take note that additional fees may apply. Do some research into what those charges could be before collecting the vehicle.
What insurance should I choose for my car rental in Wilmington?
It’s a good idea to have collision damage protection to cover your Wilmington car rental against accident damage, theft and vandalism. And with Expedia, you can easily add this insurance to your vehicle during the booking process. Providing up to $35,000 in primary coverage, it also offers 24-hour emergency assistance and a zero-dollar deductible in the event of a claim. Change of plans? If you cancel your insurance before your scheduled pick-up time, you’ll get all your money back.
