Is insurance required to rent a car in Agate?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through rental car supplier, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car supplier's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental.

- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
