What is the fuel policy for Dodge rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car. 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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas 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 petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas 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 drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before returning the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to explore all that Dodge and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and make certain there is no damage or scratches. 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
