What is the fuel policy for Basile rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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 have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Basile. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Go over your policy to see if there are mileage limitations.
Before you leave the lot
