For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check car rental company's policy before you decide.

What are the different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We suggest returning your car topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you bring the car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Tips before you leave the lot

  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
