Do I need insurance to rent a car in Sutherland?
When cruising through Sutherland or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for interim coverage with the rental agency. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Sutherland rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open 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 car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any 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 pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel 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 can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
