Is insurance required to rent a car in Pembroke?
When cruising through Pembroke or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill 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. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than 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 have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
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.
