What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise bringing it back topped off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Elk Falls. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur added charges. Go over your policy to see if there are any restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
