Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several suppliers 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 drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the vehicle.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Gifu?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
