|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas 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. 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 can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
