Is insurance required to rent a car in Pocahontas?
When cruising through Pocahontas or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage with the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Pocahontas.
What is the fuel policy for Pocahontas rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices 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 upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car 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||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 your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". 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. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before returning the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Pocahontas?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Before you get started on your Pocahontas trip, check a few things prior to leaving the lot. You should:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
