Do I need insurance to rent a car in Lake City?
Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Lake City.
What is the fuel policy for Lake City 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 search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas 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 fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several clients all over Lake City. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring added charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Lake City adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
