Make sure to check rental car company's policy before you decide.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to 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 vehicle. Use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay more 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 when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you return the car.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Glenwood?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Glenwood. You can drive as much as you want and not incur additional charges. Be sure to read your policy to find out if there are any restrictions.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
