Many credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) will cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Midway.
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 need to find an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas 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 don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We recommend returning it filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Know before you go
Before you get going on your Midway trip, go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect your car and be certain there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- 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 radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
