Do I need insurance to rent a car in Newark?
When driving around Newark or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the United States. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will typically offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Newark.
What are the 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 find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 won't pay more than local fuel 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'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental.
