|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. 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. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees 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. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate 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 collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|

We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
