What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Castleton?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
