Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.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 get your automobile. Use as much petrol as you wish 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you bring your car back.
