How old do you need to be to rent a car in Ohio?

I’m a huge baseball fan and I love to travel. I want to fly into Cincinnati, see a Reds game, and then drive to Cleveland for a Guardians game. My only concern is that I won’t be able to rent a car in Ohio because I’m only 24 years old. How old do you need to be to rent a car in Ohio?

Seeing two storied teams like the Reds and Guardians in a single trip is something that will make you envied by other baseball fans. Thankfully, you only need to be 21 years old to rent a car in Ohio.
With that said, the car rental company is likely to add a young driver surcharge to your bill and restrict the type of cars you can rent. Call your preferred car rental company ahead of time to confirm and find out any other information about their policies.
During your trip, you can always buy rental car insurance from the rental company, but it’s usually expensive. Plus, your car insurance typically covers car rentals.
As a result, you should shop for car insurance policies on the Jerry app before you leave. Use the money you’ll save to get out of the nosebleeds and right into box seats.
