Do I need insurance to rent a car in Springer?
When driving in Springer or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S. of A. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Springer rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel 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 upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Springer?
If you want to see all that Springer and maybe even the rest of New Mexico offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Springer. Review the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot on your Springer adventure. It's important to:
- Look over your 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
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
