Look into it before you book and, if it is needed, you can just add it at checkout.

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|

We usually recommend 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.

If you want to see all that Macon and maybe even the rest of Virginia offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make certain they are truly "unlimited."
