Are there different fuel policies?
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 a 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 collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 won't pay more than local fuel 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 upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate 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 collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.
