|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|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. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before returning the vehicle.
