Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance.

Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Teresina?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
