|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||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 pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the 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|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Melville?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Walk around the vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
