|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up 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 collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually advise 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?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Walk around your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
