Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station near 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 petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel 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. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the 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 won't have to refill the gas 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 locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
