Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will provide some coverage. But there may be limitations, such as not covering bigger automobiles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Clayton.
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 will need to find 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 collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not 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 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?
We usually advise 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Clayton?
If you plan to explore all that Clayton and maybe even the rest of Kansas offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Clayton. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:
- Check out your car and be certain there is no dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
