When driving in Penzance or the rest of Canada, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile.

Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you like 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. 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 receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won'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 collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Penzance. You can drive as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Penzance adventure. You should:
- Inspect the vehicle and make certain there is no dents 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
