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 won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuelYou won't have to search for a gas station before you return your carThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing the car back with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Clearwater Beach. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring additional charges. Go over your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage limitations.

Know before you go
