Do I need insurance to rent a car in Galeton?
When cruising through Galeton or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the United States. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||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 you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off 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 won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Galeton?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers 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
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:

- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
