Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any 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 of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Penn?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone 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 details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you go over a few things before you leave the car rental lot on your Penn adventure. You should:
- Walk around the vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
