Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before returning the vehicle.

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Aberdeen. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Read over your policy to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
