What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any 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'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|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 do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually recommend 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you leave the lot

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
