What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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. 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 refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will 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 may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise returning it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Nevada?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Nevada. You can drive wherever you want without incurring extra charges. Review your policy to discover if there are any limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should:
- Look over the car and be certain there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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
- Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
