Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't need 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 have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
