Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
