Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a vehicle. However, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it is needed, you can just add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the fuel policy for Handley rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much gas as you like and top it off when you return your car 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel 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 of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage bringing it back filled up. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before you bring your car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
