Do I need insurance to rent a car in Gadsden?
When driving around Gadsden or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip.

Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find 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 get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up 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 return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
