What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Burnside. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring added charges. Review your rental agreement to discover if there are any restrictions.
