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 near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. Use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to 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 charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate 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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before 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?
We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Gardiner?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Gardiner. You can drive wherever you want without incurring additional charges. Read over your policy to see if there are mileage restrictions.
