Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Selbyville?
When driving around Selbyville 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. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy interim coverage through the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to 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. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. But, if you return your 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 fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before returning the car rental.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Selbyville?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Selbyville. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur extra charges. Review your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
