At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you bring the car back. Stations near or around 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. Check the fine print before you book.
