Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental supplier.

The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Somers.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you like 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 need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas 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 get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing the car back with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
