Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance through the rental agency.

The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Round Island.

Full to empty (pre-paid)You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning the car with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you begin on your Round Island vacation, check a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:

  • Inspect your vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
