Does Painesdale require rental car insurance?
When cruising through Painesdale or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Painesdale rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you want 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas 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 shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Painesdale and maybe even the rest of Michigan offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Painesdale. Read the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
