|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees 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. 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||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. But, if you return your 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, 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.
