Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling costYou only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

What fuel policy should I get?

We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Tatum?

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.
