Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any 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 refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up 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 find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
