Are there 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||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||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 shop around for the cheapest 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 provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that you 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 North Berwick?

Before you drive off
Before you begin on your North Berwick adventure, make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
