Do I need insurance to rent a car in Northfield?
When cruising through Northfield or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will generally provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Northfield.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up 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. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Many suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, full-to-full is our stand-out winner. 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 Northfield.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Northfield and maybe even the rest of Ohio offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
- 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). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
