Does Neon require rental car insurance?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage through the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage; but, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
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 need to search for a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've 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 fill up at any station you want 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. Ask the 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 usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Neon?
If you want to see all that Neon and maybe even the rest of Kentucky offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Neon. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Neon adventure. You should:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
