Do I need insurance to rent a car in Bridgman?
When cruising through Bridgman or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage through the rental supplier. Otherwise, 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 American Express, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
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 your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up 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. 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 pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Bridgman?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several customers all over Bridgman. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur extra charges. Review your policy to find out if there are any restrictions.
