|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
