Will I need insurance to get a car rental in De Young?

Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will provide some coverage. However, there may be limitations, like not covering larger automobiles such as trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to De Young.
Are there 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 an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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 half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back 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 a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise bringing it back topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that De Young and maybe even the rest of Pennsylvania offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over De Young. Review the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get started on your De Young vacation, check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
