|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can 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 pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.
