|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more 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 pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas 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 locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|

We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
