Is insurance required to rent a car in Bethlehem?
When driving in Bethlehem or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Bethlehem rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they will 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 your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up 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 do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Tips before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the 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 radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
