Does East Machias require rental car insurance?

When cruising through East Machias or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car.

You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before bringing the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

If you wish to see all that East Machias and maybe even the rest of Maine offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over East Machias. Read the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."

Before you drive off

Before you begin on your East Machias adventure, be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
