|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you want 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|

Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We recommend returning the car with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
