Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy interim coverage through the rental supplier.

Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|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 need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||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 encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the 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. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the vehicle.
