What is the fuel policy for Maxwell rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to 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 fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||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 before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to see all that Maxwell and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Maxwell. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the lot. It's important to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new region
