Does Black Lake require rental car insurance?
When cruising through Black Lake or the rest of Canada, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental.
Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station close to 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 need and top it off when you return your car 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 half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 won't 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 fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Black Lake. You can drive as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to see if there are mileage restrictions.
