At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
