|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise 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 incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot on your Caledonia adventure. You should take time to:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
