Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Decatur?
Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Decatur.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have 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 be charged refueling fees or service 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 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||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before bringing the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice 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 leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Decatur adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
