|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges 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. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||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 won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the 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?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. 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 those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Garden River trip, be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- 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
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
