Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you might already be insured by your existing car or credit card policies.

What is the fuel policy for Hillsborough rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.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 pick up your car. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car 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 might pay a higher rate 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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Hillsborough offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Hillsborough. Go over the fine print to be sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
