Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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 any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Nevada?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Nevada. You can cruise as much as you like without incurring additional charges. Go over your policy to discover if there are mileage limitations.
