Do I need insurance to rent a car in Central Lake?
When cruising through Central Lake or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury 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 have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the 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 usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing your car back filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few items before you leave the lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the car and make certain there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it 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 windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new region
