Is insurance required to rent a car in Hayden?
Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a car. That said, 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, those policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Hayden. Check ahead of time and, if it is needed, you can conveniently add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
Are there 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||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider 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||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing your car back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the rental.
