Do I need insurance to rent a car in Bluff City?
When driving in Bluff City or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. 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 automobile. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your 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 collect the vehicle, and you don'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 have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
