What is the fuel policy for Danville rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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 half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to check out all that Danville and maybe even the rest of Alabama offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Go over the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Danville adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
