What is the fuel policy for Reserve rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged 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 fuel you don't need. 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 pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. We advise returning your car filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Reserve and maybe even the rest of New Mexico offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
Know before you go
Before you get started on your Reserve vacation, make sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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 unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
