Insurance is required, wherever you rent a vehicle. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it is required, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
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 near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. 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 fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||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 pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before returning the rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Mineral Wells and maybe even the rest of West Virginia offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
