Do I need insurance to rent a car in Newport?
Insurance is required, no matter where you're renting a car. However, you might already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, these policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Newport. Look into it before you book and, if it's required, you can easily add it at checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.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. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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, it's only necessary 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 pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check 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 collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Newport?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Newport vacation, check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out the vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
