What is the fuel policy for Athol rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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 need 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 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. Check with 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 return 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
