Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off 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 may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you begin on your Aleppo trip, be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
