Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before 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 should I get?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Belmont?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Belmont. You can drive wherever you like without incurring extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to see if there are mileage restrictions.
