|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees 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.

What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing the car back with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
