Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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 need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas 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 locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before bringing the rental.
