Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. However, you might already be insured by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Rudd. Check in advance and, if it is needed, you can conveniently add it at checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Rudd and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Rudd. Review the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot on your Rudd adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
