When driving in Hull or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage with the rental supplier. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to 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. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you want 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 need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill 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. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when 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?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Hull. You can drive as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Be sure to read your policy to discover if there are mileage limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If so, write 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
