Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Carlisle. You can drive as much as you like and not incur added charges. Read over your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you drive off
Be sure you go over a few things before you leave the lot. You should:
- Inspect the vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly 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
