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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning the car with a full tank. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
