Is insurance required to rent a car in Blairs?
When driving around Blairs or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know 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 at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. 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. 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||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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? Simply 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 pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up 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 drop-off your car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Blairs?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers 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. Check the fine print before you book.
