You will have to find a gas station near the drop-off location

What fuel policy should I get?

We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount 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, find a gas station before you bring it back.

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

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Essex. You can drive wherever you like and not incur added charges. Review your rental agreement to see if there are mileage restrictions.

Know before you go

Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's important to:

  • Look over the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
