Is insurance required to rent a car in Ridge?
When cruising through Ridge or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned 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.
Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the fuel policy for Ridge 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 an open 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 collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||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 the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up 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 get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that customers 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 miles is a good choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Ridge. You can drive as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Read over your policy to find out if there are any limitations.
Before you drive off
Before you get started on your Ridge vacation, make sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
