Do I need insurance to rent a car in Amana?
Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a 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 collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Amana and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you get started on your Amana vacation, be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and be certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
