Insurance is always needed, no matter where you're renting a car. 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, these policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's necessary, you can just add it at checkout.

What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
