What is the fuel policy for Big River rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won'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 have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
