Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't 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 fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
