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 you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|

Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around the car and make certain there is no damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
