Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Ellsworth?
When driving in Ellsworth or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car 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. 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'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your 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 as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Ellsworth?
If you want to check out all that Ellsworth and maybe even the rest of Nebraska offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."

- Inspect the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
