But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.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 collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
