Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need 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 automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the 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||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before 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 as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Richland?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Richland. You can drive as much as you want and not incur additional charges. Go over your rental agreement to discover if there are any limitations.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Richland adventure, make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and be sure there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
