Does Canton require rental car insurance?
When cruising through Canton or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage with the rental supplier. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the provider to see if they'll 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 won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually suggest that you 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.
