Does Dutch Settlement require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a car. With that said, you might already be covered by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it's required, you can easily add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you 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 charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car 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 collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before 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 go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We recommend bringing it back topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before returning the vehicle.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Dutch Settlement?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. 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 get started on your Dutch Settlement trip, check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new region
