But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Sardinia.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees 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 the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll 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 a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then you would going to a nearby gas 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 refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Inspect your vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
