Do I need insurance to rent a car in Peridot?
Insurance is required, no matter where you rent a vehicle. That said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, those policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it is required, you can easily add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What are the 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 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 automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier 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 usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||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 fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental.

If you wish to explore all that Peridot and maybe even the rest of Arizona offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Peridot trip, be sure you check out a few items before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
