When cruising through Bentley or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used.
