In United States of America you do need to have insurance before you rent. You might also be able to purchase additional insurance through the supplier for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental.

Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually offer coverage. But many have restrictions, such as not completely covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

We encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to fill it back up before you return.

Many suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it's part of the bundle. It's important to calculate how many miles you will be driving ahead of time. You don't want to be surprised with any additional fees if you don't have unlimited miles, so be sure to understand the company's policy.
