Do I need insurance to rent a car in Glendale?
When driving in Glendale or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage through the rental agency. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide 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 the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank 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 rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service 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 provider 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||You might pay a higher rate 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 the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest 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?
If you want to explore all that Glendale and maybe even the rest of Oregon offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Glendale. Review the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."
