Does Nachusa require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always needed, 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, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's needed, you can easily include it at checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to 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 be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill 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. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have 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 do you recommend?
Many suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Nachusa.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Nachusa?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
