Are there different fuel policies?
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 rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling 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 an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before returning the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Pinto?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit several clients all over Pinto. You can cruise as much as you like without incurring extra charges. Make sure to read your policy to see if there are mileage limitations.
