What's the age requirement to rent a car in Bathgate?
Usually, to rent a car in Bathgate you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to find what the exact rate is before you reserve your rental.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Bathgate?
Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you might already be insured by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it's necessary, you can just include it at checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||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 the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Bathgate and maybe even the rest of North Dakota offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Bathgate adventure, make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the car and make certain there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
