Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station near 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 automobile. Use as much gas as you wish 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up 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 rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up 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 collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that Holstein and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to make sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
