In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide.

We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with.
