|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've 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 fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full to full 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, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you plan to explore all that Pound Cove offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Pound Cove. Go over the fine print to be sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
