Do I need insurance to rent a car in Fitzgerald?
Insurance is always needed, no matter where you rent a vehicle. With that said, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, those policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Fitzgerald.

What is the fuel policy for Fitzgerald rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a 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 get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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 have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. We recommend returning your car with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before bringing the rental.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Fitzgerald?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the car and be certain there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
