Do I need insurance to rent a car in Pipestone?
Insurance is mandatory, wherever you rent a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full 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's needed, you can conveniently 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 need to find an open gas station close to 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 automobile. Use as much gas as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 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'll get the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel 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 don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
Many rental car suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, full-to-full is our stand-out choice. You simply bring the car back with the same amount of fuel you got it with. Just be sure you make time to shop for the cheapest gas prices.
