Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Bobtown?
Insurance is required, no matter where you rent a car. With that said, you might already be insured by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it is required, you can conveniently include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. 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 and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the rental car 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 bring back the 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 pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise returning it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Bobtown and maybe even the rest of Pennsylvania offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make certain they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get started on your Bobtown trip, be sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Look over the vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- 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
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
