Do I need insurance to rent a car in Widener?
When cruising through Widener or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Widener.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. 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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you don'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 have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning the car with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you bring it back.

If you plan to check out all that Widener and maybe even the rest of Arkansas offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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
