What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several customers all over Tinker. You can drive as much as you want without incurring added charges. Read over your rental agreement to see if there are any limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Tinker adventure. You should take time to:
- Look over your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
