Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply 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 charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer 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 bring back the car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your 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?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those 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. Check the fine print before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Lodge Grass adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
