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. 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.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel.

What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing it back with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
