Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Many rental car suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Achilles.

If you plan to see all that Achilles and maybe even the rest of Virginia offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make certain they are actually "unlimited."
