|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. 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 option for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Hamlin adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
