What age do you have to be to rent a car in Tuscola?
Typically, to rent a car in Tuscola you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to figure out what the exact rate will be before you book your car.
Does Tuscola require rental car insurance?
Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Tuscola. Look into it before you book and, if it's necessary, you can just add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|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 want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need 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 pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify 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 pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning the car topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Tuscola adventure, go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Inspect the 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 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
