|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 then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Uvalde. You can drive as much as you want without incurring additional charges. Review your policy to discover if there are mileage limitations.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the vehicle and make sure there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
