When driving around George or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for George rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling 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. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 pick up 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 have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Look over your car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. 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
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
