What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car 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 need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to 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 pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Iron Mountain?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Iron Mountain. You can drive wherever you like and not incur added charges. Be sure to read your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- 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 wipers
