What fuel policy should I get?

We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Elgin?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Elgin. You can drive as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.

Tips before you leave the lot

Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Look over your vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scratches. 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
