|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want 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 when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|

We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
