|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use.

Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing your car back topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before returning the car rental.
