Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car 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. 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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more 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 pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your 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|
