|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We advise bringing it back with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
