Does Shacklefords require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a car. However, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it's needed, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have 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 pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several 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 return your car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing the car back topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Shacklefords?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
