You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Sterling.

Enterprise does require a deposit when you book your rental. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Sterling. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Enterprise. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Sterling's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Sterling.
