|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any 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'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
