Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. However, you could already be insured by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it is required, you can just include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What are the different 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 a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank 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 need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to see all that Harford and maybe even the rest of New York offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
