When driving in Cartersville or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Most countries require driver's insurance.

What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when 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 go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
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?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Cartersville adventure. You should take time to:
- Check out the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
