Insurance is mandatory, no matter where you rent a vehicle. With that said, you could already be insured by your credit card or car policies.

Look into it before you book and, if it is necessary, you can just include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. 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||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling 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 the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will 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 your vehicle, and you don't have 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 locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental.
