The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs.

What is the fuel policy for Pukalani rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Pukalani and maybe even the rest of Hawaii offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Pukalani. Review the fine print to be sure they are actually "unlimited."
