Is insurance required to rent a car in Hinesburg?

The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage with the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have 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 need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
