Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Barss Corners rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have 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 pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest 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 of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Many suppliers 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||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before bringing the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Barss Corners?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
