What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing the car back topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those 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. Check the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:
- Walk around your 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 see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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 radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
