In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Dollar. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide.

Dollar requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Madison. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Dollar.
