What is the difference between all the 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 a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. You can 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 pay for the fuel you use. 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 pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||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 pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back.
