The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage with the rental supplier. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

The major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Kanawha Head.

What is the fuel policy for Kanawha Head rental cars?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You will have to find an open gas station near your rental car supplier
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullThere will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling costYou only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuelYou won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off locationThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local pricesYou'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kanawha Head?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Know before you go

Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Kanawha Head adventure. It's important to:

  • Check out your car and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
