Is insurance required to rent a car in Shingle Springs?
Insurance is mandatory, no matter where you rent a vehicle. That said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it is necessary, you can easily add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
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 need to search for a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much gas 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 need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer 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 might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need 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 get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Shingle Springs and maybe even the rest of California offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Shingle Springs. Go over the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the lot on your Shingle Springs adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it 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
