Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary insurance through the rental agency.

Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury 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. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a 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 get your vehicle. Use as much gas as you want 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. 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the 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 gas prices to refill it. 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?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over South Windham. You can drive wherever you like and not incur additional charges. Review your policy to see if there are any restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. 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
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
