What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers 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 usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas 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 fill up before you do any serious driving|
