But there may be limitations, like not covering larger automobiles such as premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kimberly.
What is the difference between all the 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 search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return the 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 gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Kimberly and maybe even the rest of Alabama offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
