Do I need insurance to rent a car in Pawnee?
When cruising through Pawnee 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. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you wish 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit several customers all over Pawnee. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring extra charges. Make sure to read your policy to see if there are any restrictions.
