Do I need insurance to rent a car in Clay City?

When cruising through Clay City or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance with the rental supplier. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.

The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Clay City.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank

Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuelYou won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off locationThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump pricesYou'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 choose 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 choice 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

Before you get going on your Clay City vacation, be sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Inspect the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your 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 unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
