The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage with the rental agency. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually advise that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
