Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing it back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back.
