Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to 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 fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices 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 of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Several suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Lake Andes. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring additional charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
