Boston, Massachusetts: The Athens of America
As the birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston has its place in history firmly cemented. Today, Boston is known for its universities, beautiful green spaces, tech businesses and sporting culture. A car rental is a great way to travel through the city traffic and see all the major attractions during your trip.
Museums for Families
The Boston Museum of Science is just under 3 miles from the heart of downtown. This world-renowned institution partners closely with schools like Harvard University. Permanent exhibits include a celebration of Massachusetts' inventions and innovations over the years.
The New England Aquarium is located just about half a mile from the center of downtown Boston. Famous for its penguins and Marine Mammal Center, this nonprofit is a fun and educational experience. It's a great fit for families with kids of all ages.
Sports in Boston
Fenway Park, located near Kenmore Square, is one of the oldest baseball stadiums in the country. The area near and around Fenway exudes youth, with Northeastern University, Boston University and the Wentworth Institute of Technology close by. There are two official lots for parking your rental at the stadium, which is less than 3 miles from Boston Common.
The Patriots play outside of Boston proper, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The town is about 30 miles away from downtown Boston. On the drive, you'll get to see a bit of life in small-town Massachusetts. Foxborough itself is home to plenty of charming mom and pop delis and pizza places. It's a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the city.I

For most car rental companies around the world, the minimum age requirement is 25. Drivers aged between 21 and 24 might be subject to additional local fees and may not be allowed to book vehicles under the Premium, Specialty, SUV, Minivan, Van, Convertible, Utility and Luxury Vehicle categories. Additional drivers must be at least 25 years old.
Each driver must present a full, valid and original national driver's license held for minimum of 2 years. If your license is not in a language used in your destination country, an International Driver's Permit to accompany your national driver's license is highly recommended.
Each driver must present a valid and original photo ID or passport.
The renter must present a personal credit card, valid in the country of pick-up with enough funds to put a hold for a security deposit. Third-party credit cards will not be accepted. The car rental company is solely responsible for approving the provided credit card. Online prepayment does not exempt the renter from providing a valid international credit card during vehicle pick-up. The rental company will place a hold in the amount of the security deposit and, when applicable, any additional local fees not covered in the prepaid voucher on the card provided at the rental location.
You must present a printout of the Booking Confirmation Voucher at the rental location. This document officially confirms all agreed upon services, payment conditions, rates, discounts, as well as vehicle availability within the group selected.

Rental car protections usually have the abbreviations CDW and LDW and protect the vehicle from robbery and damage in the event of collisions or accidents.
The protections against third parties have several abbreviations, such as ALI, SLI and others. In general, they protect the vehicle from third parties involved in collisions with your rental car.
To pick up the car you must leave a security deposit, also called a pre-authorization. The amount is "blocked" on the renter's credit card and "unlocked" after the return of the car on the same conditions.
It is possible to add optional items to your reservation, such as GPS, child car seat or booster seat. Take advantage of those items so you don’t have to worry about it later!
If someone else is sharing the wheel with you, they need to be added to the car rental agreement as an additional driver and meet the same documentation and minimum age requirements as the main driver or renter.
Check if your reservation has free mileage or not. Free mileage means you can ride as much as you like with the rental car and you will not pay extra depending on the ride.
