When driving around Bethel 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 the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different 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 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 end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask 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||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Bethel and maybe even the rest of New York offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Bethel. Read the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot on your Bethel adventure. It's important to:
- Check out your vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
