Generally, the age limit for car rentals in Scotchtown is 21—the same as it is across most of the country. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to go over the rental agreement to determine what the exact charge will be before you book your vehicle.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Scotchtown?
When driving in Scotchtown or the rest of Canada, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through CAN.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the 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 the drop-off location
|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 like 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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay 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. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don'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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before bringing the rental.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Scotchtown?
If you plan to see all that Scotchtown offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the car and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
