Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, 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. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Benton rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a 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 get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Benton. You can cruise wherever you want and not incur additional charges. Make sure to read your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
