If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank.

What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing it back with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice 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. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scratches. If so, write 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 to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
