|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car.

- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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
