|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
