What fuel policy should I get?

We suggest a full tank 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, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
