Do I need insurance to rent a car in Ekwok?
Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for interim coverage through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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 fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel 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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. We encourage returning the car with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before returning the vehicle. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Ekwok and maybe even the rest of Alaska offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."

Before you begin on your Ekwok trip, go over a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Walk around the car and make certain there is no dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
