Look into it before you book and, if it is required, you can simply include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.
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 search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying 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 of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Harborton and maybe even the rest of Virginia offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
