Be sure to read the supplier's terms to determine what the exact fee will be before you reserve your rental.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Charlton?
When cruising through Charlton or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Charlton.
What is the difference between all the 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 pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning your car topped off. For a cheaper rate, 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 Charlton?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you leave the lot
