What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers provide 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||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 pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|

We usually advise that customers 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
