Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Fremont?
When cruising through Fremont or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance.

Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Fremont.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter 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'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up the 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 won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
