What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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 fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Delavan?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the lot on your Delavan adventure. You should take time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
