|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We suggest returning the car filled up. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before bringing the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Know before you go
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. 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
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
