Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the U.S. of A?
When driving in Manchester or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Budget requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through Budget for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Hartford.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget, like many other rental agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The amount can vary greatly based on the size of the car. Also, be sure you have enough funds on your credit card to make a deposit.
Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring it back to Budget.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Manchester?
Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of your bundle. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most car rental suppliers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you are imagining some road trips to find out what else is in Hartford.
