|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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 pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not 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 refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|

We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Deer Park. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Review your rental agreement to see if there are any restrictions.
