What is the difference between all the 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 your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much fuel as you like 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
