|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|

Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing it back with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before bringing the rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
