Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Big Pine?
When driving around Big Pine or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for interim insurance with the rental agency. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many 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 get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the 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 find 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 vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges 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. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Big Pine?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
