What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Rockton?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Rockton. You can cruise wherever you want and not incur added charges. Read over your rental agreement to find out if there are any restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
