|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. 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 half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up 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. Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your 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 should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Before you leave the lot

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
