Do I need insurance to rent a car in Calvin?
When driving in Calvin or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you need 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter 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 pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||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|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to see all that Calvin and maybe even the rest of Oklahoma offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Calvin. Review the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Calvin vacation, check a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new region
