Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Most rental car companies provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend returning your car topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to check out all that Wichita and maybe even the rest of Kansas offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Wichita. Review the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Tips before you leave the lot
