You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank

We suggest a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before returning the rental.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to see all that New Kent and maybe even the rest of Virginia offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."

Before you leave the lot

Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Walk around your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. 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
