Is insurance required to rent a car in Lodi?
Insurance is mandatory, wherever you rent a car. 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 may not provide total coverage, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Lodi. Check ahead of time and, if it's necessary, you can easily include it at checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any 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'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Lodi and maybe even the rest of New Jersey offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Lodi. Review the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Lodi vacation, check a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
