What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||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 pick up your vehicle, and you won'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 need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Enterprise. You can drive wherever you like and not incur added charges. Go over your rental agreement to find out if there are any restrictions.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
