Does Tangier require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a vehicle. That said, you could already be insured by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, those policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's necessary, you can easily include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before 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 fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Tangier offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get going on your Tangier vacation, check a few items before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
