Do I need insurance to rent a car in Holbrook?
When driving around Holbrook or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage through the rental agency. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will generally provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Holbrook.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Holbrook adventure. You should take time to:
