What is the fuel policy for Freedom rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the supplier 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 might pay more 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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Walk around the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
