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.

We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before bringing the vehicle.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
