Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a vehicle. With that said, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, these policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it's necessary, you can conveniently add it at checkout.
What is the fuel policy for Idledale rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Idledale?
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. Read the fine print before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
