Is insurance required to rent a car in Yoakum?
When driving in Yoakum or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check your 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. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas 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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Yoakum. You can drive wherever you want without incurring added charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Yoakum adventure. You should:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. 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 inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
