In Rhode Island, you only need to be 21 years old to rent a car.
But if you’re under the age of 25, the rental car company may charge additional fees and restrict the type of car you can rent.
You can also decline rental car insurance if you have personal car insurance. Most policies cover rental cars, making rental car insurance an unnecessary expenditure.
