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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full.

Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning your car filled up. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the lot. You should take time to:
- Look over your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the 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). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
