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 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 need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront 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 fuel 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. We suggest bringing the car back topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before returning the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
