Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank.

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
