|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|

We usually advise that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Glenelg. You can cruise as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Review your rental agreement to see if there are mileage restrictions.
