Do I need insurance to rent a car in Oak Grove?
When cruising through Oak Grove or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will typically offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs.

What is the fuel policy for Oak Grove rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up 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. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning it topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before returning the rental car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone 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 details on mileage limits before you book.
