|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your car. You can use as much fuel 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
