Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Mabelvale?

Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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 quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||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|

We usually suggest that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
