Does Marietta require rental car insurance?
Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will cover your car rental. But there may be limitations, like not covering bigger automobiles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Marietta.
Are there different fuel policies?
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 the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees 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 an empty tank. Ask the 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Marietta and maybe even the rest of Ohio offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Marietta. Go over the fine print to be sure they are actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the lot on your Marietta adventure. It's important to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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 navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
