|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much gas as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel.

We usually advise 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.
