Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Cedar Knolls?
When driving in Cedar Knolls 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 automobile. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance through the rental agency. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Cedar Knolls.
What are the 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 an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half 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 be charged refueling fees 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 the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that customers choose 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?

Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:

- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
