Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a 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 pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your 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 fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies provide you a full to full tank policy. We suggest bringing it back filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 Paulina?
If you want to check out all that Paulina and maybe even the rest of Louisiana offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Paulina. Read the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you begin on your Paulina adventure, go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Check out the car and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
