Full to FullThere will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra feesYou 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 any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty.

We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the rental car.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
