Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you could already be insured by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, those policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it's needed, you can simply include it at checkout.
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 find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full 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. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel 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'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more 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 refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise returning it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
