Do I need insurance to rent a car in Energy?
When cruising through Energy or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you like and top it off when you return your car 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 any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Many suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, the stand-out winner is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Energy.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Energy?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Energy vacation, make sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
