Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your automobile. Use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||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 you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want 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 will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Before you drive off
Before you get started on your Capitol trip, check a few things before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
