|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||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 charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers offer 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 usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when 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 do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before you return the car.
