|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. 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 return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than 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 drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
