Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Bangor?

When cruising through Bangor or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy interim coverage with the rental agency. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bangor.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. We advise bringing it back filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you wish to check out all that Bangor and maybe even the rest of Pennsylvania offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."

Know before you go

Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the lot on your Bangor adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out the car and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
