What is the fuel policy for Niagara Falls rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for 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 pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don'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 locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You should receive your car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. 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.
