|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much fuel as you need 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 need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning your car filled up. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before bringing the rental car.

Before you drive off
