What is the fuel policy for Bridgewater rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel 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 have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually suggest 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?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Bridgewater. You can drive wherever you like and not incur added charges. Review your policy to see if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Before you get going on your Bridgewater trip, check a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
