Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need 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, you'll only need 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers 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 bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don'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 do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing the car back with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.
