What is the fuel policy for Castleberry rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|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 wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Castleberry and maybe even the rest of Alabama offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
