Is insurance required to rent a car in Yuma?
Insurance is required, wherever you rent a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, your policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Check ahead of time and, if it's required, you can just add it at checkout.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a 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 automobile. Use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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 half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 collect the vehicle, and you don't need 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 have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before returning the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Yuma?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Yuma. You can drive as much as you like and not incur extra charges. Review your rental agreement to see if there are any restrictions.
Before you drive off
Before you get started on your Yuma adventure, check a few things before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- 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
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
