|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more 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 pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing your car back with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
