Can I rent a car at 18 in Massachusetts?
Though the minimum age to rent a car in Massachusetts varies from 21-25 years as per the supplier, it doesn’t mean that 18 years olds will not be able to rent cars. If you have a valid & full driver’s license, you might be able to rent, but since most of the rental companies ask for a valid driver’s license with at least one year driving experience, we advise you to read T&Cs properly.
Where can I rent a convertible/corvette in Massachusetts?
Renting online and that too at least 3 months in advance is the best way to save time and money against picking the car on spot on arrival. In the latter case, you pay way more that you have to and as is the case in high tourist season, there might be queues too, which will waste a lot of your precious holiday time. Convertibles, corvette or other luxury cars are available with almost all of our suppliers & can be rented online on VIP Cars.
