Do I need insurance to rent a car in Hudson?
When driving around Hudson or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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. 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 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 pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing it back topped off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
