Insurance is required, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you.

What fuel policy should I get?

We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

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

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you drive off

Before you begin on your Newport adventure, check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:

  • Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • 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). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
