You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S. of A. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car. 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges 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 an empty tank. Some suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before you return the car.
