Do I need insurance to rent a car in Lake Crystal?
Insurance is always required, no matter where you're renting a car. With that said, 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, those policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's required, you can conveniently include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||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 fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill 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. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||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 collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your 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 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Lake Crystal and maybe even the rest of Minnesota offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to be sure they are actually "unlimited."
