Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Dimmitt?
Insurance is always needed, no matter where you're renting a car. 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, these policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Dimmitt. Look into it before you book and, if it's necessary, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more 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 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 get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage bringing the car back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. 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
Be sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Dimmitt adventure. You should take time to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
