Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the 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 fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near 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.
