Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your car topped off. 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. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before bringing the rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
