When cruising through Utopia or the rest of Canada, you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip.
The major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Utopia.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend 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.
