But many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you like and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify 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 won't need to refill the gas 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 as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Many rental car suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, full-to-full is our stand-out winner. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Calder.
