Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and make sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the 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
