Usually, to rent a car in Schneider you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to go over the rental agreement to figure out what the total will be before you rent your vehicle.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Schneider?
When driving in Schneider or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage with the rental supplier. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the rental car 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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before 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 advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Schneider and maybe even the rest of Indiana offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
