Do I need insurance to rent a car in Baker?
When driving in Baker or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 can fill up at any station you want 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 of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
