What fuel policy do you recommend?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those 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. Read the fine print before you book.
