Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply 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 refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|

Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|

- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
