Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you wish 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
