Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want 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 and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel.

What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to see all that Eagle and maybe even the rest of Alaska offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to be certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the lot. It's important to:
- Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
