What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, 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 save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers 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 fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. 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
- 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new region
