Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. 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 the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually advise 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.

If you wish to see all that Bay Saint Louis and maybe even the rest of Mississippi offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Look over the car and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
