Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel 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 may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually advise that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
