Is insurance required to rent a car in Buena Vista?
Insurance is required, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's needed, you can simply add it at checkout.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching 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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. We advise returning it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before you bring the car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
