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 near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. But, 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 fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station 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 Kittrell?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several customers all over Kittrell. You can drive as much as you like without incurring additional charges. Review your policy to discover if there are any restrictions.
