What is the fuel policy for Alban rental cars?
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 the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you wish 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 need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have 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 get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage bringing it back with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the vehicle. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
