|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the 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 fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several clients all over Temple. You can drive wherever you want and not incur extra charges. Be sure to read your policy to discover if there are any limitations.
