Is insurance required to rent a car in Monte-Carlo?
When driving in Monte-Carlo or the rest of country, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through MCO.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the 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 your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Monte-Carlo offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Monte-Carlo. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
