Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need 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 be charged refueling fees or service 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. Several suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to find 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 will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Trenton?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit several customers all over Trenton. You can cruise wherever you want without incurring extra charges. Read over your rental agreement to find out if there are any limitations.
Before you leave the lot
Before you get going on your Trenton vacation, check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:
- Look over the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
