Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas 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 get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing the car back filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
