Do I need insurance to rent a car in Woodson?
When cruising through Woodson or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for interim insurance through the rental agency. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the 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|
