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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have 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 pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with the needle at "F". But, 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. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
