|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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 half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||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 collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
