Does Greenback require rental car insurance?

Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance through the rental supplier. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service 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. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||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 your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing the car back with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Greenback and maybe even the rest of Tennessee offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Greenback adventure, make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the 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
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
