|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|

Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the lot. It's important to:
- Look over the vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
