Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Geneva?
Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance through the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Geneva rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more 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 don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||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 should I get?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Geneva and maybe even the rest of Indiana offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Geneva trip, make sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
