Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Gardner?
When cruising through Gardner or the rest of the U.S. of A., 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 for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there 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 near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will 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 may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Gardner trip, make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:

- 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 wipers
