Are there 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 an open gas station near 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 vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before 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 go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
