Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Golden City?
When driving around Golden City or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Golden City.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will 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 collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing your car back with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before you bring your car back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Golden City?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Golden City adventure. You should:
- Look over your 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
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your 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. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
