What is the fuel policy for La Malbaie rental cars?
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 the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car 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 fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We suggest bringing your car back topped off. For a cheaper rate, 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over La Malbaie. You can cruise as much as you like without incurring additional charges. Be sure to read your policy to see if there are mileage restrictions.
