Is insurance required to rent a car in Marion?
When cruising through Marion or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance through the rental supplier. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary 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 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. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won'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 go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back. 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 Marion and maybe even the rest of Ohio offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to make certain they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over the car and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- 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
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
