Do I need insurance to rent a car in Mystic?
When cruising through Mystic or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Mystic rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Many suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice is usually full-to-full. You simply bring the car back with the same amount of fuel you got it with. Just be sure you make time to shop for the cheapest gas prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to explore all that Mystic and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Mystic. Read the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
