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 car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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 quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||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 your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
