Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Several suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel.

Know before you go

- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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 windshield wipers
