Is insurance required to rent a car in Sodus?
When cruising through Sodus or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance through the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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.
Are there 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 search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas 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 collect 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 have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental 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. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before returning the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Sodus and maybe even the rest of New York offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to make sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Sodus adventure. You should take time to:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
