Is insurance required to rent a car in Hubbard?
When cruising through Hubbard or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before 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 should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Hubbard and maybe even the rest of Oregon offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot on your Hubbard adventure. It's important to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on your 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
