What is the fuel policy for Chester rental cars?
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 near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up 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. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
