What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your automobile. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've 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 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 pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you return the car.
