What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
