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 close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||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|

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you bring it back.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
