Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use.

You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|

Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||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 collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the 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|
