When cruising through Stratford or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip.

The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will generally cover your car rental.

It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Stratford.

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 an open gas station close to your car rental supplier

Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling costYou only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank

What fuel policy should I get?

We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to explore all that Stratford and maybe even the rest of Washington offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Stratford. Read the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."

Before you drive off

Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Stratford adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Inspect your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If you notice any, 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
