Is insurance required to rent a car in Thawville?
Insurance is always required, no matter where you're renting a car. Nevertheless, your current car insurance may cover you.

What are the different fuel policies?
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 near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. Use as much fuel as you wish 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Several suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local 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 when you drop it back off||You fill the 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 do you recommend?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Thawville and maybe even the rest of Illinois offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Thawville. Review the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly 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). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
