Does Scio require rental car insurance?
When cruising through Scio or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you pick up your car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the United States. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check your 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 a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||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 need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Scio?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Look over the car and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
