What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for 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 pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to 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 service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas 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 confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol 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 collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. We advise returning your car filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before returning the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
