Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 need to pay for any fuel 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|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel.
