Understanding the Insurance Policy
People often buy a car rental insurance when they are out for vacations. Car rental insurance provide the same coverage for liabilities, medical and physical damage as like your car insurance provides.

Know The Coverage Area
If your credit card company provides you car rental insurance, make sure to check whether that coverage extends to cars rented outside your province or state or not. Like if you live in Canada and have car rental coverage, would it also provide coverage for the cars that you hire outside Canada say in Europe or any other country. Before planning any outing outside your state, it is advised to get the coverage details from your credit card company.

But it may surprise you that some trucks, vans and vehicles with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) also know as ‘sticker price’. It is the price used by dealers to sell vehicles. Over a certain amount most of the MSRP vehicles are also not covered. So make sure you are aware of this condition.
Fuel Service Option
If you choose fuel service option, regardless of with how much fuel you return the car, they’ll charge you for a full tank of gas. Thus, it is advised to return the car with an empty tank or you can avoid using fuel service option.
Keep-an-Eye on Your Mileage

In general, car rental companies render a daily limit of 100km. Rest of the kilometers are charged and one wrong turn can drive up your costs.
