Do I need insurance to rent a car in Williamstown?
When cruising through Williamstown or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Williamstown.
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 find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much gas as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel 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 the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
