Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate 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 your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|

We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you bring it back.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers 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.
