Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some insurance on your rental, however, 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 a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider 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 bring back the car||You usually pay a higher 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 the 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 can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning your car filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
