Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Leesburg.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. 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||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Leesburg?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Look over your car and be certain there is no dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your 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 navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
