Do I need insurance to rent a car in Tamaqua?
When driving around Tamaqua or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Tamaqua.
What is the fuel policy for Tamaqua rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station close to 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 car. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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, 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 be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return 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 your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
