Do I need insurance to rent a car in Stockholm?
Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a vehicle. Nevertheless, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Stockholm. Check ahead of time and, if it is needed, you can easily include it at checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a 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 get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need 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 pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||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 won't 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 fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring your car back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to explore all that Stockholm offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Stockholm. Read the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
