|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those 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. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the lot. You should take time to:
