What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
