Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full 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 of your rental period. 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 be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill 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. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your 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|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Fredericksburg?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several customers all over Fredericksburg. You can drive as much as you want without incurring added charges. Review your policy to see if there are any limitations.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's important to:
- Look over the car and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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 entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
