Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near 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 vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring the car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Avondale and maybe even the rest of West Virginia offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to make certain they are actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Make sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
