Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open 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 collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half 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 fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to explore all that Bird Island and maybe even the rest of Minnesota offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Bird Island. Read the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the car rental lot on your Bird Island adventure. You should take time to:
- Look over the vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
