Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Glade Hill?

Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Glade Hill rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need 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 vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider 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 bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
