Does Brookston require rental car insurance?
Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the 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 near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than 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 fill the tank back up when 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 as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Brookston. You can drive wherever you like and not incur extra charges. Review your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Brookston adventure. You should:
- Walk around the vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
