What's the age requirement to rent a car in Bernie?
Generally, the age limit for renting a car in Bernie is 21. But, you may find that there is an added fee if you are under 25 or for larger or higher category cars in particular. Go through the supplier's terms to determine what the exact charge is before you book your car.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Bernie?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage through the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance on your rental; but, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car supplier's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest 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 fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||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 don't need 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 as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your car topped off. However, 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. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before bringing the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Bernie and maybe even the rest of Missouri offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get going on your Bernie trip, make sure you check a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
