Make sure to check rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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 any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider 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 return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers 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. Check the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot on your Glenshaw adventure. You should:
- Inspect your vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
