|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. 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 gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before 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 collect the car|

Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing the car back filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental.
