Does Clarksville require rental car insurance?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
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 need 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 car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay 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. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone 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 leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the lot on your Clarksville adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect the car and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
