|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much gas 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|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. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
