Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies offer 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before 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|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the vehicle. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Lewistown?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Lewistown trip, go over a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
