|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've 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 if you don't refill the tank|

Check with the rental car provider to see if they will 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 higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|

We usually suggest that customers opt for 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 option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
