Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Continental.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. 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||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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
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.

Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Continental trip, check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:

- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
