Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search 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 your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before bringing the rental.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Garden?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Garden vacation, make sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. 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
- 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
