Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a 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 vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more 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 collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Chester. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur added charges. Go over your rental agreement to discover if there are any restrictions.
Know before you go
