Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. 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. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||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 your 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 have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that customers 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 travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
