Top tips for renting a car in Napa Valley

  • You can book your Napa Valley rental car by various means. Credit cards are the most widely accepted means of payment, with American Express, Discover Network, VISA, and MasterCard cards accepted by most car rental locations in Napa Valley.

  • Everyone in the vehicle, eight years or older, must wear a seatbelt in Napa Valley.

Kids between two and five should be in a forward-facing car seat, while those between five and eight need to be in a booster seat.

  • With all the wine tasting in Napa Valley, you might be tempted to drink and drive. Don’t. Instead, register an additional driver to act as your designated driver while you have a good time in Napa Valley. Car rental agencies will allow you to register more than one additional driver during your rental period. The driver must meet the license and age requirements, and there is a daily fee charged for each additional driver registered. However, it is free if the other driver is your spouse or domestic partner.
  • If you want to save a few bucks during your trip to Napa Valley, ensure you fill up your rental car before returning it. Fill up at a gas station near the drop-off location to avoid being charged for refueling by the rental agency since their gas price per gallon is significantly higher than local gas stations. You can also prepay for gas and return the car empty. However, no refunds will be issued for unused gas.
