Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you return the car.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Hutchinson?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone 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. Check the fine print before you book.
