Most countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Clarks Point rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've 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 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 pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several rental car companies 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 return your car||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 your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||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 fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before bringing the rental car.

If you want to explore all that Clarks Point and maybe even the rest of Alaska offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to be sure they are actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Clarks Point adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the car and make sure there is no dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
