|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel.

What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
