|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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 fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty.

Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. We recommend returning your car topped off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
