What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.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||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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. 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'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty 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 rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before bringing the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Ossian?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
