Does La Loma require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always required, no matter where you're renting a car. However, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, 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.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up 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 suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
