When cruising through Farmville or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage with the rental supplier. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before returning the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
