Does Carson City require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. That said, you might already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Carson City. Check ahead of time and, if it is necessary, you can conveniently add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need 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 get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Carson City?
If you plan to explore all that Carson City and maybe even the rest of Michigan offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
