What is the fuel policy for Irene rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. 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 can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill 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 supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas 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 find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Irene?
If you plan to see all that Irene and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Irene. Read the fine print to be certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get going on your Irene adventure, go over a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
