How old do you have to be to rent a car in Saint Michael?
Typically, to rent a car in Saint Michael you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to go over the rental agreement to discover what the total is before you book your car.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Saint Michael?
When cruising through Saint Michael or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with 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||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you bring your car back. 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 those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the lot on your Saint Michael adventure. It's important to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
