When cruising through Saint James or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance.

Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
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 need to search for an open 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 car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 fees 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. Ask the supplier 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 might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
