Does Hermitage require rental car insurance?
Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary insurance with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage; however, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car supplier'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 have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service 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. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Hermitage. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring added charges. Be sure to read your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- 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
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
