|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning the car topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone 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. Read the fine print before you book.
