Does York require rental car insurance?
When cruising through York or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. 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||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||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 get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually advise that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over York. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to see if there are mileage restrictions.
