Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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 won't pay more than local fuel 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 fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend returning it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Cheshire. You can drive as much as you want and not incur added charges. Make sure to read your policy to see if there are mileage restrictions.
Know before you go
Before you begin on your Cheshire trip, be sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Check out your vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
