What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. 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 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||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 collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
