|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you 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 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 of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||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 won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car.
