Does Falls Church require rental car insurance?
When cruising through Falls Church or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer 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. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Falls Church rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open 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 collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the 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 collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing your car back with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
