Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?

Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for interim insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank of gas, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, you should fill up your tank before you bring it back to the supplier. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
