Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's required, you can simply include it at checkout.

|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|

Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
