However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Arcata.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We recommend a "full-to-full" policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to refill the tank before you return. If you want to save some money, you should fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it is part of your bundle. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive and plan your trips ahead of time.
