Do I need insurance to rent a car in Garfield?
When cruising through Garfield or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage through the rental agency. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some insurance on your rental, but 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 search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel 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 and return the car with an empty tank. Check with 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 drop-off your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Garfield. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring added charges. Go over your policy to discover if there are any restrictions.
Know before you go
Before you begin on your Garfield vacation, go over a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any dents 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
