|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more 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 your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|

We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
