Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Jasper. Check in advance and, if it's needed, you can just include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
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 find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||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 any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Some 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||You usually pay a more expensive rate 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 refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you bring your car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Jasper. You can drive wherever you want and not incur extra charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Jasper trip, be sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
