Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges 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. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have 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 have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get into your car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you bring your car back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cartwright?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Cartwright. You can drive as much as you like without incurring added charges. Review your policy to find out if there are any restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
