When cruising through Davis or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Davis.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local 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 when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Davis?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Davis adventure, check out a few things before you leave the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
