Make sure to check rental car supplier's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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? Then you just 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 or service charges 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 supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
