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 rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||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 the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before bringing the rental.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Alden?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Alden. You can drive wherever you want and not incur additional charges. Review your policy to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
