What are the different fuel policies?
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 close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices 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 and return the car with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We recommend bringing it back filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
