Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullYou'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling costYou only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuelThere will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your carYou might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump pricesYou'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the vehicle. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Rio Linda?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you leave the lot

Before you get going on your Rio Linda trip, check a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Walk around the car and be sure there is no dents or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly 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
