What are the different 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 the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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 quarter of a tank? Then you just 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 fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||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 won't have to refill the gas when 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|

We usually advise that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Before you drive off
