|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. 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 shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay 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||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||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 pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|

We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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 wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new region
