What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you 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 can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay 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. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||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 the vehicle, and you don'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 have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cooper?
If you wish to explore all that Cooper and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Cooper. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
