Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, your policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check in advance and, if it's necessary, you can conveniently include it at checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up 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 supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before returning the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Woodlands offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Woodlands. Read the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot on your Woodlands adventure. You should take time to:
- Check out your 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
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
