|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at 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 need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Little Grand Rapids?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
